Schedule family time on a regular basis so that everyone isn’t always going in different directions.
As a family, talk about what each person is learning about that gets him or her excited.
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.
Avoid being the only parent in your kids’ lives. Find other adults who can help your kids grow up well.
Apologize to your kids when you lose your cool. Parents aren’t perfect.
Listen more to your kids and talk less.
Take your kids to regular doctor and dentist visits to keep them healthy.
