Today's Tip for Families
Children are naturally self-centered. But parents can help them grow out of this and learn to cooperate and collaborate with others.
The first step is learning to appreciate others. Urge your child to compliment at least one person every day—and not just about their looks. Tell her that she should be sincere. Encourage her to be on the lookout for good things her relatives, classmates and friends do, so she can compliment them on their actions. "You sang that song really well!"
To reinforce this behavior, take the challenge yourself. Then talk with your child every day about the compliments you each paid.
