An Important Parenting Tip To Help You Talk To Your Kids
Tip #1–If you hope to develop any kind of relationship with your kids you have to learn how to talk with them and not at them. This will require you giving them your undivided TIME. That means that you spend time with them. You need to show some interest in what they feel is important. Play catch-fly a kite–anything that requires you to spend time with them doing something. This is not a 10 or 15 minute exercise just to say that you did it. It must be must be genuine. They will know otherwise. Never make a promise that you can’t or don’t keep. If you say you are going to spend time with them–that’s what you do.
