LOVE NEVER EVER, EVER FAILS!
Be present! Never give up!
Remember the 10-20-10 Rule with your child/children:
Quality Time and Attention
10 - 20 - 10
10 minutes undivided
time with each child in the Morning
* Try it
daily for 2 weeks and see what a difference you will have in your child's
** If you can't start with that, start with 5-10-5- Just do it!
that Quality time and Attention does not always require words. Sit next
to your child when they are waking up or going to bed and rub their
head or their leg. Sit with them when they are eating breakfast and
snack after school- without multi-tasking- and see what direction your
child will start to take with talk. Even if they don't talk to you-
believe me- they know you are there and they know that you are not doing
other things-that you are there for them. Knowing matters. More than
you know. Be present. www.PregnantInMyHeart.com/bepresent
