Learning How to Stick with Things (2-10-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:        To teach your child about determination.

PRACTICE:    Today, tell your child a story about a time you learned to do something – ride your bike, play basketball, sew, cook, etc.

Explain what it took to learn. How much time and practice it took.

Talk about what it felt like to finally be able to do it. Share what you did when you felt like giving up.

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.)
