Nobody is handed a job description that lays out what to do upon becoming a parent. Yet, parenthood is a job that’s full of responsibility. Of course, it also has more than its share of rewarding moments. Part of that job includes how you spend your time together as a family, and how you handle the bumps in the road. We’ve gathered these resources to give you some guidance for the most important job of your lifetime.
These resources range from fun and education activities online to teaching your teen essential life skills.
Make Internet Use Educational
We all rely on the internet – maybe even a little more than we realize. It’s there to attain knowledge, for entertainment, and so much more. Since it’s an inescapable part of our lives, it’s important to know how to use it with kids. Here are some tips.
Offline Fun That’s Hands-On and Interactive
One of the best things about the internet is you can find ideas to take offline. Let it be your guide for hands-on activities that keep kids engaged and creative juices flowing.
Encourage a New Skill or Hobby
One of the best things you can do as a parent is to introduce kids to new ideas – and then watch and encourage them as they take off with their newfound passion.
Striking the Right Balance
Limiting screen time (but having tech-savvy kids), not hovering (but being involved), keeping kids active (but not being a sideline coach) — parents today are given so much conflicting advice! The truth is that the best parenting approach is one that strikes balance.
Since parenting doesn’t come with a job description, it’s something we all must learn as we go. Thankfully, none of us are alone in that respect! These resources can provide you with endless ideas and answers to every question that pops up along the way.
