Can you recommend any particular low- or no-cost fun family activities for parents of very young children?
There are many no-cost fun family activities. When my boys were young, wrestling and Nerf gun fights topped the list. Yard games such as all-terrain bocce (pair-up or individually), croquet and bag-toss also can create some fun after the initial investment in the equipment is made. Finally, any outdoor excursion is always good for the soul and communication. Hiking, fishing, or playing in the water are always great fun when the weather allows. Q: If you could go back in time and start your family constitution before having children (or while your oldest was an infant or toddler), what – if anything – would you change about your approach? A: The biggest change to my approach is the discussions with my wife about parenting goals and ideals would have started before we ever decided to have children. That way, we could have focused our efforts earlier and not run into some of the communication challenges that we ultimately encountered. Q: Do you have any advice on ways to teach children to
