Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Your child can learn how to act by seeing what happens in stories.
PRACTICE: Read a story to your child today. Talk about how the people in the story acted.
Were they mean, silly, smart, polite, a leader, a bully, friendly?
Talk about what happened when the people acted this way. Did others laugh at them, get mad at them, run away, become a friend?
Ask your child if he has ever had something like that happen to him.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MR. ZINGER’S HAT. 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.)
