      I remember when we had family gatherings my father used to talk about his past. Now that im a father when i tell his stories to my kids they don’t belive me but at the same time they are very curious to know more and more. Brings the family together. My question is, as a father and a family man ,is there any other way to connect with them other than the advice you gave..

        Hi Nicole,

        Yes! Kids love to share about there day…but ONLY at the end of the day. As they are getting ready for bed, go lay down and ask how the day went…what was the best part…what did you learn…any problems you overcame…etc.?
