Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: All kids can be scientists.
PRACTICE: Today, give your child a problem to solve. For example: you have to clean up dog food on the floor every time the dog eats.
Ask your child the following questions to help him solve whatever problem you give him.
- What is not working or what needs to happen? What have you seen or heard that makes you know this.
- What do you think might solve the problem?
- How can you test whether you are right?
- What can you do, if you are not right?
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.)
