We have regular routines. I find ways to include my child in decisions about fun and work activities according to their age. I try to see things from my child's point of view. I think that children age 4 and under are too young to do many things for themselves. I monitor my child's activities (TV, music, internet, movies, home environment, friends). I monitor my child's safety both inside and outside of our home environment. I take time out to play or do something fun with my child. I try to remember what is normal for my child at this age. I will talk to my child about his or her educational goals without criticizing. My child will talk with me about things that happen at school. I work with my child to solve problems at school. I give my full attention to my child when he/she talks to me. I believe family meetings are an important part of running a family. I believe that sharing what I think and feel about our values can influence my child's behavior. I use logical consequences when my child does something wrong. I am able to influence my child's behavior without yelling, hitting, or threatening. I let my child participate in decisions that affect the family. I wait to deal with problems until after I have cooled down. I encourage my children in clear and specific ways. I believe saying I love you is as important as showing love through actions. I give my child chores. I believe children need encouragement as much as discipline.
