10 New Year’s Reminders for Moms
1 – Give hugs to every day (to your kids and your husband)
2 – Kids hear better when mom’s voice is calm and kind.
3 – Cranky kids and naughty kids are often tired kids. Protect bedtime!
4 – The way you talk to your child tells him his value. Make sure your words and your tone tell him he is special, wonderful, and precious.
5 – Make time to play.
6 – Kids need parents, not another friend. Don’t be afraid of your parental authority.
7 – Listen more than you speak. Listen with your ears, eyes, heart, and gut – you will learn a lot!
8 – Don’t jump in too quickly – give your kids a chance to find their own solutions and fix their own problems.
9 – Model forgiveness.
10 – Say “I love you” every day.
