Meet them where they are

It's better to show interest in your child's favorite things. Join them in their hobbies. Listen to their favorite band with them on the way to school. You can also ask them to teach you how to play their favorite video game, make a funny TikTok video together, pass a soccer ball, or play basketball in the yard, and watch them build their newest LEGO set.

Tune in by watching movies & TV shows

Teach your kid a new skill

Young kids are eager to learn anything their parents are willing to teach them. Harness their curiosity and turn their time into bonding.  For younger kids,  pull a chair to the sink and teach them how to wash the dishes or how to break the ends off snap peas while making dinner.
