How to Be a Better Parent
Be playful with your child. It has a positive and long-term affect.
Communicate. Verbalize how much you love your kids.
Spend time with your child.
Be reliable. If you say you're going to be there for a musical concert, be there so kids don't learn to be unreliable.
Accept responsibility. Ensure that your kids are well-clothed, well-housed, well-fed and grow up with good character.
Be open emotionally.
