Get Active

Every day can be Family Day!  Here are some great ways to stay engaged in your children’s lives:

  • Be there: Get involved in your children’s lives and activities.
  • Open the lines of communication and keep them wide open.
  • Set a good example: Actions are more persuasive than words.
  • Set rules and enforce them with consequences if your children fail to follow them.
  • Monitor your children’s whereabouts.
  • Maintain family rituals such as eating dinner together.
  • Incorporate religious and spiritual practices into family life.
  • Get Dad engaged—and keep him engaged.
  • Engage the larger community.
  • Get to know your kid's friends and their parents.
