Older Children – Meet Them Where They Are.

Monday’s Parenting Thought
Meet your older children where they are.
When all they are interested in is their big muscles and not so much their minds – meet them outside for some activity before they do their homework.
When they want to talk endlessly about their special interests – from tarantulas to the latest pop star – hear them out, but don’t take over their interest and become the expert. Let them be the teacher.
Read to them once in awhile – even though they can read all by themselves.
