Create holiday traditions that involve kids of all ages.
Listen to your kids and help them develop into who they’re meant to be.
Teach your kids the positive values you think are important. Explain why.
Scan The New York Times Best Seller List. See which children’s books are listed. Introduce a new book to your kids.
Find someone to care for your kids from time to time so that you can take a break to do something for yourself.
Pay attention to each person’s schedule. Make sure someone isn’t doing too much and someone else isn’t doing enough. Try to find a healthy balance.
Stay in touch with extended family members. Find ways to connect even if someone is far away.
Put on music your family enjoys. Dance to the music.
When kids get discouraged, listen to them. Give them space. Tell them that everyone gets discouraged at times.
