Keep track of your child’s events

“I always try to attend parents’ activities and school sports days and make an effort when there is a special reason to attend, such as cross-country running. To do that, I ‘write off the morning’ in my diary so that my secretary knows not to book anything. I think that is really important, because children need to know that while you cannot be there for everything, you will always try to be there for special events.” – Paul Bannan, neurosurgeon

  • Keep track of your children’s upcoming events
  • Arrange your work schedule around these important events whenever possible
  • When you are there for the special events your children know that they are your priority

Negative Peer Pressure

Don’t avoid talking to your children about peer pressure. Also, invite their friends to your home and get to know them uncritically.

Tips:

Get some mental exercise
