How to Connect
As a parent, your influence on your child is humongous. Do you want the same for your child that you had? Do you want more for them? We should always ask ourselves if we are being the best example we can be for our children. I know as a mother, this question motivates me in the way I live. I want to be the best example I can be for my children. One way you can connect with your child is by asking them to share a highlight about their day at school. In our house I ask my children, "What was a rose in your day?" Then I ask, "What was a thorn in your day?" This allows me to hear the joys and the sorrows of their day and I can show them excitement and empathy. When we ask our children about their school day, we are investing in their education and showing our children that school is very important.
