Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Being silly is good for you and your child.
PRACTICE: Play make-believe doctor with a young child today. Make up silly illnesses like a bumpy tummy or a loosey goosey lip. Give silly treatments and medicines like bug juice or giggle goo. Take turns with the child being the doctor. Be sure to laugh, if the child tries to be like you and make up silly illnesses and medicines.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, DOCTOR TED. 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.)
