Learn by Doing. (4-12-15)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:        To learn by doing.

PRACTICE:   Plan a trip to a place different than where you live.

It can be a vacation-type trip to another state or country, if that is in your family plans for a time coming up.

Or, it can be something much more simple like a trip across town to a community different than yours (for example, a part of town where a different culture is found like Italian, Chinese, Greek, or Jewish).

Use the Internet or books to look up things about where you will be going.

When you return, have your child write about his trip, draw a picture of what he saw, or make up a story or poem about the trip.

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.)
