Involve your children in decisions about family spiritual activities.
Make sure your child isn’t over- or under-scheduled. Your child also needs downtime at home, as well as time with you.

Be low-key when you’re around kids. Kids tend to gravitate toward calm adults who listen to them.

When your children are excited about something, share their excitement.
