The little actions you take every day add up, helping kids grow to be confident and responsible.
2 tips for raising successful kids: —> 1. Establish clear boundaries. 2. Enforce consequences for not abiding by them.
Develop a network of friends who are willing to step in and “co-parent” on occasion (babysit, pick up a kid from school, grab an item at the store, etc.). It takes a village!
Try to be ready to listen whenever kids are ready to talk. When they are ready to share an important thought, a tough experience or a difficult question, make yourself available.
Support your child’s interests and seek out opportunities for them to develop their talents. As they grow older, it may help them make important decisions and life choices.
Make a point to spend 1 on 1 time with your children throughout the week. Consider a “date night” with each child individually on a regular basis.
Foster a strong work ethic. Encourage your kids to do their best at every task they undertake, no matter how small, no matter how “unimportant”.
