Five ideas for making your kids feel loved: 1. Celebrate with them 2. Have special rituals just between the 2 of you 3. Treat them like they are amazing 4. Focus on the positive 5. Make yourself available
Summer-time (or any time off from school) can turn into lazy-time if we aren’t careful (by “we”… I mean the parents). It can be easy for us, as parents, to just let our kids lounge around and hop online or turn on the TV when they are bored, but my husband and I really try to keep a limit on those things. That is where our home rules come into play.
As soon as your kids are capable of doing jobs, take the time to teach them to do the jobs and then gracefully hold them responsible to follow through! This is the Montessori way and it really works to build confident, responsible kids.
