Listen to your kids
Parents are not a police department that issues orders, rules and laws. Your children need your kindness and understanding. Be gentle and attentive. Talk to your children and learn to listen to them. They may be willing to open up to you so that you could help them or give advice. If you ignore this tip, your kids will look for help elsewhere and trust strangers rather than you. Ask your kids if they would like to talk to you and tell them that you are ready to listen to their concerns.
