Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Children need to be able to tell how others are feeling.
PRACTICE: Today, search the Internet for “feelings faces games.”
Either purchase a game you discover, use one available online, or get ideas about how to make a homemade version.
Play it with your child. Use the game faces to teach about feelings.
Ask your child what feeling would go with each face. Tell stories about why a person might look (or feel) that way.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, BOO HOO BIRD. 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.)
