How to Be a Better Parent

  • Be playful with your child. It has a positive and long-term affect.

  • Communicate. Verbalize how much you love your kids.

  • Spend time with your child.

  • Be reliable. If you say you're going to be there for a musical concert, be there so kids don't learn to be unreliable.

  • Accept responsibility. Ensure that your kids are well-clothed, well-housed, well-fed and grow up with good character.

  • Be open emotionally.
