Make Your Compliments Useful (2-3-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       To give your child useful compliments.

PRACTICE:   Focus on one thing you like about your child.  Each time he shows you that thing today, tell him exactly what you liked about it.

For example, if you like that he makes you laugh, every time he makes you laugh today, take a minute to tell him specifically what it was about his behavior that you enjoyed.

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.)
