- Start a “no technology time” in your home. Turn off the computers, DVDs, TVs, cell phones, etc. Let your children get “bored” because that is where creativity starts.
- Reserve one night a week as Family Night. Watch a movie and eat popcorn. Keep it simple. Just be together.
- Create a “Quiet Time” for 15 minutes a day. Set a timer for your younger children.
- Make weekends a time to rest and recharge for the week ahead.
