Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Your child should know about your work.
PRACTICE: Today, make a plan to take your child to work with you.
The official “Take Your Child to Work Day” is April 23 this year. Plan ahead to do that.
And, maybe in March you can arrange with your supervisor to have your child with you for a short period of time on an agreed upon day – even just an hour would be interesting for your child.
While your child is at your work be sure he gets to see (or maybe even try) the real things that you do at work.
Remember that it is good for your child to know what it is you like about work.
If we are not careful, it is very easy to have our children only hear us complaining about work. This will not help them understand why we leave the family to go to work everyday nor will it help them look forward to being a worker themselves one day.
To be prepared for tomorrow’s Parenting Tip: Have a funny video or book on hand.
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.)
