Below are some helpful tips for parents in working together with raising your family.
Moms: Support the father figures in your children’s lives with your appreciation and respect. They are not just subbing for you; they are your tag team in keeping your children secure and safe, not just from the world, but in it.
Dads: (biological and otherwise) Turn off your devices and be in the moment with your kids. They need to know, trust and feel the real you. Take your unique role as ‘Securer of Exploration’ seriously; they do.
