Increase quality time with your child.
I recommend that you start to make special opportunities to be with your child by learning the 10-20-10 strategy on a regular basis. Here’s a formula to follow. You spend 10 minutes in the morning, 20 minutes in the afternoon, and 10 minutes in the evening with your child. These are special opportunities to be with your child. These opportunities are to just listen without judging, blaming, or shaming. Validate whatever your child is saying and feeling. Validation does not mean you agree with their opinion. Validation means that you are listening to your child. By doing this families can begin to repair their broken relationship. Repairing your relationship with your child helps you influence your child to start making more responsible decisions and demonstrating respect.
Incorporate daily scripture based meditations during your 10-20-10 time.
