Celebrate Your Child’s Skills (2-5-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       To celebrate something your child can do for himself.

PRACTICE:   Pick a skill your child has shown recently – cleaned off the table, brushed his teeth, got a good grade in math, cleaned up his toys –  celebrate it today.

Make a big deal about it at the dinner table, plan a special afternoon snack to celebrate, make him a “Yeah for You” greeting card that can be put up for all to see.

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.)
