AFN Radio Interviews with Dr. White: Goals
Tip for the Month -- "Just Play!"
Play bonds families together. How you decide to have fun together as a family, from visiting castles to going on a hike to playing card games, reveals your family values, culture and identity. Play can be the antidote to conflict as well. It allows our brains and bodies to relax, think clearly, solve problems, sleep better, eat better, breathe efficiently and feel more grateful.
"Just play!" though, it often harder than it seems. It takes scheduling, practice and energy to have fun sometimes. But the more positive time you have with your kids, the more productive they will be.
