Tip of the Month : Make a date to go out with your spouse once a month. Its healthy for you, your spouse, and your relationship but its also healthy for your child. Small time periods of separation now will help your child separate when it comes time to go to school. Your child will observe your healthy relationship and will be better equipped to form healthy realtionships when he/she is older. In addition, though your child may temporarily be upset at your absence, ultimately she/he will be happy that you are happy.
