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.
