Tiptastic Tuesday: Honest Parenting

By Damien Knight

This weeks Tiptastic tip is a parenting one. Today I had a long conversation about my childhood with my kids. I answered them without hesitation. And this made me realise I never dared ask my parents how they were raised or what they did as kids.

Growing up it always felt like my parents had always been adults. Surely they never played like I did. I wanted my kids to know I understood, I have been there so I regularly tell anecdotes of my childhood. And that’s my tip for parent’s tell your kids about yourself. Want kids who will trust you with secrets? Trust them, believe me it works. When my son went through some tough stuff he knew I’d listen because I always do.

I am sure this isn’t new advice but maybe for some it is. Anyway happy Tuesday!

Cut a square of orange felt. Wrap toilet paper in the felt. Roll brown paper for stem, stick it in the center of the roll. Cut green felt into leaf shape. Tuck in green felt. Use permanent marker to draw any Jack O’ Lantern face on it.

The great part of this project is you can use glue but don’t need to. This way if you need the toilet paper you can just remove the felt.
