Purposeful parenting is all about being really involved in your kids' lives -- knowing what they are up to and setting some positive boundaries to guide their behavior and decisions.

A FEW IDEAS:

  • Instill a healthy sense of self-esteem in children. Compliment them daily with sincerity. Show interest in their world.

  • Make time to listen and talk to children.

  • Go to the library with children or encourage them to visit the library.

  • Teach your children the value of serving in your community. Consider teaching by example and participating in a family volunteering opportunity.
