Time is the greatest currency you have with your kids. Spend it wisely. Here are 3 tips to help you accomplish this.

1. Participate

Be in the moment and be involved. Games are some of the best ways to do this. Put your electronics away and give your kids full attention. This will communicate value to them and validate their worth.

2. Validate

When your kids do something well, honor it. Your words will echo in their minds later even when you’re not around and even into adulthood.

3. Laugh

This is medicine to the soul and leaves long lasting memories. Laughter is also a form of approval that your children desperately need.
