Tips to Spend Time With Your Children

  • Children want your undivided attention. When they talk, look at them and engage them in further conversation.

  • Listen to their music. You might begin liking it.

  • Ask them what they want to do. Is baseball their love? Play catch in your backyard.

  • Establish new family traditions. Set a specific time each week for them, such as Friday pizza nights.

  • Develop your family as a team. Give everyone chores. Do them together.

  • Make one-on-one time with each child. Kids talk more freely when they're with just one parent.

  • Watch television shows they choose. Then talk about them.
