This will teach your little ones that it is totally okay to make a mistake as long as you acknowledge it and that saying sorry is not that hard.

7. Health is essential, so just pick walking instead of driving. Just use your legs for short distances. Your little one will definitely love the time spent outside, even if he is in the stroller.
8. Being a friend for your little ones is amazing, but you cannot forget that your job is to be a parent. There will surely be some moments when your children will not like you, but deep down they will always love you no matter how strongly they wanted that candy.
9. Always stay consistent. Do not change rules every day, or every week. If possible, do not change them at all. Of course, they have to be fair first.
10. Dancing is one of the best way to relax and just put yourself out there. When you are tired from all those endless demands, just turn on some music and shake off the struggles of day. To be honest, it is really hard not to smile when you are letting yourself go to the music.
