Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: A Plan B is good to have.
PRACTICE: Today, watch someone whose special interest or talent became his career – a cook on a TV show, an athlete at a sporting event, a doctor, the weatherman on TV.
Talk about what that person might have done, if he wasn’t able to be a cook, athlete, doctor, or weatherman. Could he have written a cookbook? Been a coach or sold sports equipment? Invented a new medicine? Been a science teacher?
Talk about why a Plan B is a good idea – not to stop a person from following his Plan A dreams but to make a person know that he can deal with whatever happens. Talk about how education is an important part of both a Plan A and a Plan B.
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.)
