Say No to “Perfect” (1-29-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:          There is no such thing as “perfect.”

PRACTICE:     Today, listen for how many times you say “perfect.” Plan to remove that word from your talk tomorrow.

Instead shoot for excellence. “That was excellent!”

Shoot for your personal best. “I did that better than I’ve ever done it before.”

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, THE THINGS I CAN DO.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
