Don’t be overly proactive

“I do think proactively about important things for the kids, but then I put it to the back of my mind. It’s important not to have it too far in the front of your mind or you’ll feel like you’re imposing too much of your views on them.” – Peter Newman, environmental scientist, author and educator.

  • Keep proactive parenting thoughts in the back of your mind.
  • Always make those interactions natural. Don’t try to force proactive moments on your children.
