TINY ParenTip of THE MONTH
Children need both PREDICTABLE ROUTINES and CREATIVE SURPRISES. Yes, routines can be dull but they are the glue that holds a family together because everybody knows what to expect when. The best predictable routine is the family dinner. Make it happen several nights a week. Think up some exciting surprises too. Picnics indoors in the winter. New activities or projects the whole family can do together like forming their own band. Even a chore like cleaning out the garage can be fun if everybody is involved.
News from Dr. Heins
Overweight kids (and grownups too) can lose weight without going on a diet. They do it by the numbers. They follow the 5-2-1-0 Rule.
