Teach Your Child to Help Others (3-30-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      You can teach your child how to help others who are hurt.

PRACTICE: Think back to a time your child was with a friend who got hurt.

If you helped him help the friend, remember how you did that.

If you didn’t help him help the friend that time, think about how your child could help a friend if it happens again. For example, he can get bandages or offer a toy to play with.

Make a plan to try the things you thought of the next time your child is in this situation.

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.)
