Time Together

Three ways to be supportive of your child:

  • Have a weekly family game night. Take turns choosing games to play.
  • Spend one hour a week with each child alone. Take a walk, listen to music, or just hang out.
  • Find out one area where your child is struggling. Listen to your child’s concerns. Help your child think of ways to address the issue.
