It’s okay to get overwhelmed from time to time as a parent. Be patient with yourself.
Let your child express his or her unique personality. Kids reveal themselves through their clothes, their hairstyles, and the way they act.
Help your child clean his or her room. Donate gently used things to charitable causes. Talk about having less stuff.
Go to the zoo together. Discover interesting animals (and people) together.
Ask other parents which activities and family activities they enjoy doing. Then try something they recommend.
Encourage kids to share with others.
When life gets hard, be honest about it with your kids. The way you react to hardship teaches them a lot.
Notice when your kids pull away from you. Find out why without invading their privacy.
Teach kids how to be safe and how to resist dangerous situations.
Smile at kids whenever you see them. Be happy that you’re with them.
