What’s your favorite parenting tip? Pick your battles!

What has surprised you most about parenting? How you can be so frustrated at one moment with your toddler and completely in love with them the next.

How do you get your kids to eat healthy food? Start early. Keep trying them even if they start off not liking them. Encourage them to take a “no thank you” bite. They will be surprised at what they like.

How do you work exercise into your family’s life? Try to find fun activities like dancing, playing tag, and playing tennis as a family.

How do you recharge your batteries? Get babysitting on Saturday nights.
