Today’s Parenting Tip:
We understand that some of our readers are from countries that have royal princesses and princes. We respect the important history and official roles of those royal princesses and princes. These parenting tips are designed to help us understand how an ordinary person can become a lovable, capable princess or prince – both in spirit and in action.
Because these parenting tips are inspired by our featured book, PRINCESS IN TRAINING and because August is back-to school month for many kids, these tips are about how your child can return to school as a lovable, capable princess (or prince).
Decide: To be a princess in spirit and in action, your child needs to know how much you care about her.
Practice: Give 5 special messages to your child. Make them about how much you care for her. (“I want to have fun playing with you today;” make her one of her favorite foods.)
Remember, these are not messages the child has earned by being good or by following the rules. They are messages deserved just because she is a human being and needs to be cared about, especially during these first days of school.
Repeat on several days before and during the first days of school.
