6 Things Parents Should Know...

So I was watching the Today show and this segment hit me, and was so important!
"6 Things Parents Should know to keep there Children Out of Trouble"
1.Have dinner together at least 5 times a week. It's so important! And the church has taught this to us as parents!
2. Go to Church, Worship, or Synagogue, at least once a week. DUH!!! But I found it really neat that they said this on the Today Show.
3. Check Your children's homework every night. This helps your children know that you care about their education too.
4.Having a basis of trust. Demanding the truth and getting the truth. Know what your children are doing on the weekends, know who there friends are. And be open with them.
5. Take Your Children On A Vacation. *Without the Blackberry! When your children are trying to get your attention and talk to you, but you've got that dumb phone in the way. They don't think you even care. And this is totally vis versa! Get rid of the technology, just for a week.
6. Play a team sport. Getting you child active and your family supporting is perfect!
Just wanted to share how coincidental this segment was. I know we all know these things but maybe helped you a little like it helped me!
