What parents should do everyday

January 15th, 2010

My friend asked for advice as a new mom.

There are volumes written on being a parent.  But if I have to simplify it all down to 5 points, because no one likes to read a long post, here is the advice I would give to a mom.

Do these 5 concrete action items everyday. These are seemingly simple yet significant acts that will keep balance in your life.

1. Laugh out loud about something, anything, everyday. Don’t lose the joy of parenthood. Keep a positive attitude.

2. Give hugs and kisses to your spouse, everyday. Don’t forget that is your primary love relationship.

3. Get some fresh air, everyday. Go outside, breathe deeply, look up at the sky. That will give you a fresh perspective of life.

4. Talk to a friend, everyday. Maintaining friendships and having adult conversation keeps you sane.

5. Pray for your children, everyday. God will fill in the gaps where we lack in our human efforts.
