Celebrate Big as a Couple/Family: Our four-year-old daughter started ballet yesterday. I was going to let my wife take her and the toddler while the rest of us stayed home. After all, there is plenty of work to do online. Although only my wife could go in, I decided to go. I’m glad we did. All day, including the drive, we talked about how big of a day it was. We made it special. We smiled and celebrated! I think that it is so important to have a home where little and big things are celebrated. Make a big deal about your kid! Make them feel special.
