Twenty Tips for a Healthier, Happier Family by Tom Carr
1) TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT YOURSELF How is your own self-esteem ? Are you involved with others? Do you join clubs, groups, etc. ? Do you have any time just for you ?
2) WORK AT DEVELOPING A STRONG, LOVING RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR SPOUSE A strong relationship includes good communication, affection, compassion, honesty, acceptance, dependability, sense of humor, romance, patience and freedom.
3) AFFECTIONATELY TOUCH EACH OF ONE OF YOUR CHILDREN EVERY DAY.
4) PROVIDE A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL FOR YOUR CHILDREN. The old saying, "Do as I say, not as I do", doesn't work. Positive role-modeling is probably the most powerful discipline "tool" there is.
5) BEGIN FAMILY TRADITIONS. Children seldon remember what they received as a birthday present when they were ten years old but they will never forget such family traditions as special Christmas foods or always going on a picnic on the first day of spring!
