Teach Your Child a Skill (2-4-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       To teach your child to DO something.

PRACTICE:   Think of something you do that your child seems interested in (cook, fold laundry, wash the car, draw, sing). Today, begin teaching him to do it with you.

Break the skill down into parts. Teach one part at a time. Let him do each part as many times as he needs to in order to be good at it, then move on to the next part.

Enjoy each step along the way. Celebrate each part that he learns to do well.

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.)
