Help kids learn how to balance their schedules so they’re not overbooking or under-booking themselves.
Maintain a warm, caring relationship with your kids even when they frustrate you.
Encourage your child to participate in activities that nurture their spirit.
Act in ways that you want your children to act. Don’t just tell them what to do and what not to do.
When you take your kids shopping, be clear about the budget and what you will and will not buy. Otherwise, it’s easy for kids to pressure you to buy on impulse.
Get your child a library card in her or his name and go there often to check out books.
Monitor your kids to keep them safe—and to know what they’re up to. Keep track of them in ways that show kids you’re interested in them, not waiting for them to make a mistake.
