Safety First (2-6-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       To pay attention to safety.

PRACTICE:   Think about the chores or tasks that you expect your child to do – put toys away, remove dishes from the table, take trash out.

Make sure he can do these things safely without climbing up on things, getting into electrical cords or outlets, or dealing with shelves and containers that are unsteady and could fall over.

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.)
