How to Connect With Your Kids
Make time to listen and listen well. Listen not just for what happened, but also for what your kids are telling you about their day through their actions and tone.
Read together. This teaches kids that books are not only a source of education but also of pleasure.
Play board games together. You'll interact with your children while having fun.
Limit and monitor TV viewing. A child watching TV is not interacting with you.
Key into their unique interests. For some it might be going to a ball game, for others shopping at the mall or baking cookies.
