Engage And Invest
There is so much time that we moms are in the car together with the kiddos, so one day I decided to be intentional with all that time. It's awesome to just turn off the radio and engage with the kids.
They really love it when I point out things to them around town--there's so many interesting things to see!
Look guys a rainbow!! Or clouds in the shape of a dinosaur or dragon, a limousine or convertible, a funny guy in a chicken costume, a donkey or a speckled horse, a super cool muscle car, an antique car, a train or firetruck, or a side cart on a motorcycle!
Spark conversation and curiosity at the same time as you are training them to talk with you. You will really appreciate this when they feel close to you and want to continue to talk as they mature and become teens.
Sing, tell jokes and laugh....practice math facts or memorize scripture together--whatever it is, just keep them engaged and you will win their heart and create relationship.
"May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Romans 15:5-6
