Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Having a Plan B is a good thing.
PRACTICE: Today, think about a time you had a Plan B in case a Plan A didn’t work out. Was it related to a career? An event you were planning? A project at work?
Think about whether having a Plan B was a good idea and why. Share your experience with your child.
Talk about what it means to have a Plan B and why that is a good thing. If your child is old enough, ask her whether a Plan B would be good for her? About what? Help her develop one.
It could be as simple as a Plan B in case it rains on the day she is planning to go to the pool with all of her friends. Or, Plan B if they don’t have chocolate marshmallow nut ice cream on the day you go to the ice cream shop.
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.)
