Tip #18 — Keep your word

August 26th, 2009

Love Your Child Month is winding down in preparation of Tell Your Child You Love Them Day on August 31 — just 5 more days! Have you thought about how you are going to tell your child that you love them? Make it a point to hug your child a little longer before he or she goes off to school and look them in the eye when you tell them “I love you — have a good day at school today.”

Tip #18: Keep your commitments. If you’ve made plans with your children, do everything you can to keep them. Breaking promises teaches your kids that it’s okay to not keep your word. Create a household calendar where you and your child can see it. Each time you agree to do something together, make it a point to write it down on the calendar together so that the commitment is solidified in front of the two of you. It’s a great source of accountability and makes it much harder to forget your commitment.
