Herd Mentality no More: Your children are Not a Herd

Although many family activities are together as a group and that's a great thing, each child needs a one-on-one with each parent individually (mom and child, dad and child) and you as a couple (mom and dad and child) at least once a month. Yes, you can do this. You need to do this. Put this on your calendar. Your children are not a herd. It can be something as simple as a drink together at the table and chairs in the grocery store lobby. Take some time to relax together and talk about more than just logistics of the week or month. Share an emotional connection moment. Tell your child something on your heart and ask a few questions to get your child talking to you.
Just my mom and dad and me.
