The little actions you take every day add up, helping kids grow to be confident and responsible.
Think about your children’s passions and interests. Look for ways they can make a difference in those areas. Do they love dogs? How about helping them collect pet food or soft rags for an animal shelter? Are they passionate about music? Let them share their talent in a family talent show.
Teach children about integrity in simple ways. For example, explain, “When someone thanks you for doing something you didn’t do, it’s important to say so. You can say, ‘Thanks for thanking me, but my brother did it.’”
Be willing to apologize to your parenting partner when it’s appropriate. If your child was within earshot of an argument between your partner and you or witnessed negative behavior, let them hear the apology as well.
Regularly make a point of saying something positive to your co-parent about his or her parenting techniques. Supporting each other is “key” to good parenting.
When you need time to concentrate, or for private or serious conversation with someone else, tell your children how long it will take and what you expect from them during that time. When you are finished, let them know they can once again have your attention.
