Interacting with your children

When we think about our average interaction with our children, most of them involve some kind of negative interaction like "make your bed, take out the trash, take a bath, do your homework, wash the dishes, get off the phone, get off the TV, get off the computer!!!!!!" and followed by the famous taking away of privileges as the most common consequence used by parents. Then, we yell at them and they yell back "I hate you!

So, what if we really choose wisely when to interact negatively with our children and maximize the positive interactions?

Positive interactions involve: talking, playing, exercising, singing, playing a musical instrument, watching a movie/TV all of these together with your children.

Feel free to post more positive interactions to this list.
