Education Should Connect (5-1-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      Education is important for your child to develop his special talents.

PRACTICE: Today, talk with your child about how his schoolwork connects to one of his special interests or talents.

You can explain how math connects to building things. You can explain how much more he can learn about his special interest, if he is a good reader. You can explain that he can play an instrument, take art classes, or be on a sports team at school.

 If your child is younger and still in daycare or preschool, you can talk about how you are glad he is learning to get along with others at school because that is so important to everything he will want to do as he grows up. Give examples in your own life where getting along has been a good thing.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT.  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.)
