Jennifer Grant's "Velveteen Parenting" Guidelines▼▲
- Choose your battles.
- Develop priorities in your family's life, such as treating each other with respect, eating together whenever possible, and attending church together.
- Ask questions such as, "What do I want our family to be like? What are our individual gifts and perspectives? What connects us as a family and brings us joy?"
- Remind yourself that children are not mini-adults, but are uniquely suited to grow, learn, and enjoy life in ways that many of us adults don't remember. Look with a critical - and often delighted - eye at what the culture is dishing up to your children. Teach your children to do the same.
- Don't be so hard on yourself. Moms often judge themselves too harshly and then are quick to judge and label other mothers who are fumbling along just like they are.
