Creating memorable times that your children will cherish
Want to create special memories with your children? Here are some ideas:
Give the gift of time. Schedule one-on-one time with each of your children and consider these "dates" as important as any other commitment on your calendar.
Make generous use of pen and paper. Record your thoughts, hopes and dreams for your child in letters and journals.
Put caring notes in your childs' lunch box or on his or her pillow.
Plan significant family vacations. If your family loves history, your itinerary could follow the Santa Fe Trail. If you're sports fans, take a road trip and explore some historic stadiums. If you're short on money or time, set up a tent and camp out in the backyard.
Make holidays unique. Start new traditions or observe old ones.
When your son or daughter is ready to leave the nest for college or another destination, write a special letter pronouncing your blessings and conveying your "release."
This list is not exhaustive; it's simply meant to stimulate your own creative juices. Whatever you do, don't let the years pass without creating memorable times that your children will cherish.
Whether you choose Morning Carelink, Evening Carelink or both, you'll find opportunities to make new friends and an environment full of support, wisdom & encouragement. All this while your children are lovingly cared for down the hall, so you can have some much needed "girl-time"!
Meetings include brunch (a.m.) or dessert (p.m.), speakers, small group time and childcare. Check the specific group's details for childcare because age ranges vary some.
