Here are some tips shared with me by other Music for Young Children parents:
1) If you find a piece difficult just play the first line, or first bar. When you get bored of repeating that, then try some more! Look for patterns that repeat.
2) Be persistent and don’t give up with practices.
3) Try practicing in bursts 5 minutes at the piano, 5 minutes with toys, then back to the piano, repeat.
4) Show an interest in piano. When I play the piano, suddenly everyone wants to practice. (SB2 and MB3 parent)
I had also emailed out some practice tips to add to the ones listed in your book. If you’d like another copy please let me know. Also if you have other tips to share with parents please do!
