Parent on a UNITED FRONT
Always come united as parents in front of your children so they know you work as a team.
Discuss parenting issues you may not agree on behind closed doors.
Communicate clear rules and boundaries
Be consistent, specific and clear on your rules and
boundaries, making sure your child understands what you
Recognize that your child will break some rules and at times
make poor choices.
Use poor choices as opportunities for life lessons.
Follow-through on consequences
Be consistent with what you say.
Make family dinners a PRIORITY
Have family dinners at least three times a week. This is a great time to instill
family values, connect with your children, laugh
and have fun.
Listen to what your heart is telling you
Realize a parent’s instinct is usually correct.
Show unconditional love
Especially when your child disappoints you.
Parents can be the most influential voice in their child’s life!
