As a parent and a school administrator, Dr. Coleman suggests that parents turn off the television before dinner and leave it off. “I encourage parents to read to their kids, even when they’re in junior high. My husband and I would cuddle up with our boys and read out loud many books-including the Narnia series. They never missed the television.”
As for what moms should do that is important and that they may truly be missing?
“Be kind to yourself. Love yourself as much as you love your children. Moms neglect themselves way too much.”
