Positive Parenting Strategies

CHOOSE A LANGUAGE:

Tips & Facts

  • Children learn from observing what you say and do. Use language and behaviors you would like them to use.

  • Use words that help, not hurt. Praise good behaviors and efforts. Celebrate small and big successes.

  • Plan ahead. Bring healthy snacks, beverages, and books/activities with you when you travel with your children.

  • When angry or frustrated, avoid taking out your feelings on your children. Take deep breaths or give yourself a few minutes to calm down.

  • Children learn a lot about the world through play. Set aside time during the day to let your child play.

  • Children are never too old to be told they are loved. Let your children know you love them.
