Schedule Special Times
Just like you with your spouse or friends, your children crave time carved out especially for them. We try to set aside 'special time' once a month with each child. One month I will have a 'date' with each child and the next month my husband will have a 'date' with each child. These quickly become a highlight of the month. They do not have to entail anything more than going on a bike ride, to a bookstore, or out for an ice cream cone. The important thing is that it is one on one time. Depending on your child you may want to ask them for ideas or you may just want to surprise them. The benefits it reaps in your child's behavior and all around self esteem are astounding!
