Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To find a new way to say what’s on your mind.
PRACTICE: Today, try your hand at writing a short poem.
Start by writing down your idea – what your message is. Then try to say it with rhyming words.
Remember, it is OK to use a rhyming book or an Internet site for help – or ask a co-worker, friend, neighbor, or child.
Share your poem with your child. Be sure to tell him what it was like to write it – hard, fun, made you proud to finish it, etc.
Post your poem where it can be seen.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MY GRANDMA LIVES IN FORIDA. 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.)
