Time Together: Building Strong Families
The adults involved in a child’s life—whether they’re parents, teachers, relatives, or other caring adults—play an important role in that child’s development. Building a strong network for your children is one of the best things you can do to ensure that they grow up to be healthy, caring, and responsible.
Spending quality time together will not only strengthen your own relationship with your children, it can also encourage the creation of relationships with other adults. When you give your children the resources they need, they will enter adulthood well prepared.
