Read together and discuss what you've read.
Reading together can give your children a life long love of books. Adding discussions about the things you read can help your children develop their critical thinking skills.

Establish family routines.

Serve your community.
Family bonding while helping the community fosters empathy in children . Choose together as a family how to give back to your community
