Sharing Your Empathy with Your Child (3-25-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      To help your child develop empathy

PRACTICE: Think about a time when someone you knew was hurt, and you did something to help that person feel better.

Share your story with your child. Make sure you include how it felt to see that person hurt, what you did to help that person, and what it felt like to help that person feel better.

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.)
