To encourage youth and support strong families and communities, try incorporating the Guiding Growth tips below into your daily routine
Practical Principle: Time at Home
Young person is out with friends “with nothing special to do,” two or fewer nights a week.
- As we are self-isolating, “time at home” is in high supply. But make sure the time is valuable by creating a “family fun” schedule that the whole family agrees to. Turn moments into memories during the pandemic.
- While at home provide time for and encourage your child(ren) to explore who they are. Ask them to focus on character, dreams, or their own values. Healthy self-exploration is key to healthy self-esteem.
