My husband Kevin and I are currently teaching a series called Effective Parenting in a Defective World. In this class, Chip Ingram identifies 8 ways to build stronger relationships with your personal children. These ideas were so great, so I wanted to share with you as well. Ingram encourages us all to focus on the 2 areas we are weakest in, and then do what we can in this coming week in order to strengthen these areas!
2) Shedule Time Together!
3) Focus Attention on Your Children--Don't Be So Distracted! (Really get to know who they are as people!)
4) Make Eye Contact!
5) Maintain Ongoing Communication! (Dinner Together, Shared Trips, Memories, and Experiences, etc.)
6) Give Meaningful Contact! (Hugs, High Fives, Being a Shoulder to Cry On, etc.)
7) Have FUN Together!
8) Pray Together Often!
Hope you and your family have a wonderful fall weekend together!
