7. Apologize to your children when it is appropriate.
8. Don’t say no unless you have to. Don’t be constantly negative. Be creative, find something to say “yes” to.
9. Be loving toward your spouse in front of your children.
10. As your children get older, discuss and evaluate with them curfews, discipline measures, expectations and finances. The goal is to help them develop disciplines and habits that will positively affect their futures.
