Finally, make sure that each parent has their own bonding time with each child. Getting to know your child one-on-one can be very enlightening. Sometimes just playing a board game or putting together a puzzle with your child will allow you time to get to know him better. Knowing your kids is one of the key factors in knowing how to communicate with them and handle issues involving them. If both parents take the time to gain this knowledge, things will be easier. It will never be perfect, but remember, not everyone has someone else to lean on for parenting help. Appreciate what you have and learn to balance it well.

I believe that communication is crucial to any relationship and I’ve always been fascinated by conversations with pretty much anyone. Like most podcasters, I love to talk. When the Quick and Dirty Tips Network announced the launch of The Public Speaker’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Improving Your Communications Skills, I was immediately interested. She has some great tips to share. Whether you want to learn how to start a conversation with the moms on the playground or you are faced with a name you can’t pronounce, Lisa B. Marshall has some great suggestions for you! Check it out at publicspeaker.quickanddirtytips.com.

That’s it for now. I hope you’ve enjoyed the show. Thank you for listening.
