School Should Be Useful (5-14-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      Your child should be able to use what he learns in school.

PRACTICE: Ask your child what he learned today in school. For whatever he shares, talk about how that might help him with something he is interested in.

For example, if he says he learned to play a game, you can say that learning the rules and how to follow them will make more people enjoy playing all sorts of games with him.

If he says he learned to stay away from Joey, you can say that learning about people will help him get along well with the kids on his soccer team.

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.)
