Turning Off “Hot Buttons” (5-23-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:        You can turn off a “hot button.”.

PRACTICE:   Today, learn more about the child behavior that you listed yesterday as one of your “hot buttons.”

Look it up on the Internet or in this blog – see the “What Can We Help You With” on the home page.

Think what you want to do to deal with your “hot button” now that you know more about it.

If you didn’t make a “hot button” list yesterday, make one today. List your “hot buttons” – child behaviors that get you especially angry, afraid, or nervous. For example, when your child cries, or throws a tantrum, or refuses to do homework.

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.)
