1. Always try to see life from their perspective

2. Work at being good partners

3. Discipline your children

4. Love your children with your eyes and your tongue

5. Love is a beautiful four letter word: T.I.M.E.

6. Make it a habit to hold, hug and kiss your kids appropriately

7. Make life and your home fun

8. Appropriately push them out of the nest at the proper time

9. Say consistently, “I am sorry. Will you forgive me?”
