Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: You can make your child laugh.
PRACTICE: Tell your child some jokes today.
For a very young child, you can be physical (for example, tickle or play peek-a-boo).
For slightly older children, you can try making up silly sounds like “squiggley-wiggley” or “boogey woogey.”
For older children, you can try knock-knock jokes or riddles.
And, for the oldest children, you can try puns and plays on words like “What a hair-brained idea the hare had in the famous hare and tortoise race.”
Note – This is no joke: Tonight is the night you set your clocks back an hour to go on Daylight Savings Time. Just a reminder. I don’t know about you, but I need all the reminders I can get.
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.)
