Parent Pointer for Today

Hey Mom and Dad Sticky Note

By now I am sure you have become aware that there is no manual on being a parent.  For many of us we rely on the written Word to guide us and there are still days you want to throw up your hands.

We thought...how about asking the girls to share some pointers they feel would help us step up our game as parents.

Share your struggles as a child.  Your daughter needs to know that she is not an alien from another planet.  She needs to know that you faced some of the same challenges.  Share some of your lessons learned.   You will be amazed at what it will do for your relationship.  Pssst...that is why they love grandma and grandpa so much!

Try ASKING instead of telling.  Who likes to be told what to do all the time.
