Model healthy, supportive friendships for your children.
Do something that helps you grow—take a class, learn a new skill, tackle a challenge. Share your progress with your family.
Ask your children what they think is special and unique about themselves. And then tell them what you think.
When you feel overwhelmed by the role you play as a parent, remember that you’re not alone in raising your children—they need other caring adults and relatives, too.
Teach your kids that everybody has personal values, even though others’ may be different from their own.
At your next family meal, go around the table, each sharing one challenge and one accomplishment of pride.
Teach your kids to tackle each day, and each problem, one at a time.
Encourage your children to take one small step toward changing something they’d like to do differently.
With your kids, learn some relaxation techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, or stretching.
Help your children think of their “failures” as learning experiences.
