Have a Great Day

“Have A Great Day!” is one way of telling your child that you hope their day will be a good one.  Helping your child go and have that good day begins at home. They will carry your attitude into the classroom.

Other suggestions:

  • Smile at your child – it can’t hurt!
  • Find something to praise them for – it will start the ‘positive’ ball rolling

“You look great in that shirt”
“Thanks for getting dressed on time”

  • Encourage them to eat something good for breakfast. Remember that protein is brain food.
  • Reinforce your belief in their abilities by telling them so.

“I know you’ll do well on that spelling test”.

  • Let your child know that you love them every day.

Give them a hug
Blow them a kiss
Pat their back
Just tell them
Give them praise
Spend time with them
Enjoy their sense of humor

By helping your child to have a positive outlook on their day, your day will start off better too. So… HAVE A GREAT DAY!
