Just Because You Are You Messages (8-23-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

This Parenting Tip is a reminder about things you can do to help your child get a good start at school this year.

Children lots of care-about-you messages at home because they are getting an overdose of you-did-a-good-thing messages at school.

On several days before and during the first days of school, make an effort to give your child 5 special messages about how much you care for her. (“I want to have fun playing with you today;” make her one of her favorite foods.)

Make them be messages she deserves just because she is a human being and needs to be cared about, not messages she has earned by being good or by following the rules.
