Asset No. 1 of 40 | Family Support

 Support

Family Support | Family life provides high levels of love and support.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Start family traditions and rituals such as family service, game nights, season outings, or family meetings.
  • Give kids space and respect their privacy when they need it.
  • Give each of your kids a hug today, even if they’re really big kids.
  • Spend time each week with each of your teenagers individually.
  • Create a small memory book, memory box, photo album, or private website for each of your children.
  • If you don’t live in the same city as your child, create a care package that includes a pack of cards, a book of crossword puzzles, word jumbles, or drawing activities, and some colorful pens, pencils, or markers.
