Ten rules to raise terrific kids

1.    Manage yourself – Take care of yourself so that you’re not taking your negative emotions out on your child. 

      Calm parents = happy kids.

 

2.    Be your child’s advocate and don’t give up on him – Appreciate who your child is (not what you want him to be) and respond to his needs.  We all need someone who’s 100% on our side. 

 

3.    Punishment doesn’t work, but all children need boundaries and consequences.
