May Parenting Tip

This month’s tip is simple, quick and about letting go and having fun. Just because you are an adult, it doesn’t always mean you have to act like one. Get silly with your children, roll on the floor and let the kid in you escape.

Have a funny face contest, see who can do the best animal imitation, or have a dance competition and discover who has the coolest moves. Dads, don’t be afraid to let your daughter paint your nails (okay, it can be your toes) and have a tea party. Moms, dig in your closet to dress up like a superhero and pretend to fly around the house finding bad guys.

When your kids are laughing with you and having a good time, remember that they aren’t crying, whining or getting themselves into trouble. You might also have some fun too! Enjoy!
