Six Things Every PARENT Should STOP Doing Right NOW.

Posted July 25th, 2014 @ 5:00am by Chilli Amar


I don't think there's any such thing as a "perfect parent." However, that doesn't keep us from trying to do the RIGHT thing every moment of every day. It can be exhausting.

According to an article I found in the Washington Post, here are 6 THINGS EVERY PARENT NEEDS TO STOP DOING RIGHT NOW:


1. “Exercising”: Don't push kids to “exercise,” which sounds (and feels) like a chore. Instead, play with them. Make it fun: hit the basketball court, play tag or hide and seek.

2. Relying on a screen: A little bit is fine. It’s part of our world. But when it becomes what you spend the majority of your time doing, you know that’s too much.  

3. Hiding the treats: Instead of hiding the bad stuff until your children find them and gorge, replace the processed, fatty junk with better treats...and put them in a place where kids can help themselves.
