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 help with her feelings, including fears about school.
Practice: Trust your belief that there are things about school that your child may be afraid about. While watching TV together or as your child is falling asleep, silently and gently stroke her arm or forehead or hair. If she objects, calmly stop and don’t be offended. Try again another time.
