Getting Ready for Valentine’s Day (2-1-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       To be ready for Valentines Day.

PRACTICE:   Let your child help you gather the things you will need to make valentines together.

Mark February 8 on your calendar. Make a sign for the fridge to remind your child of the date you are going to make your valentines.

Over the next few days, you and your child start a journal where you can write down things you each want to say on your valentines. If your child is young, when he thinks of something he wants to say on his valentines, have him tell you what to write in the journal.

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.)
