#4 Make your home child-friendly. Make your home “the place to be.” Create a room, even a corner of your home where your child and his/her friends can have age-appropriate privacy. Encourage this activity by stocking with toys, games, and dvd’s on reachable levels. Providing a few easy and healthy treats (sliced apples, baby carrots, applesauce, celery sticks, energy bars) where they can enjoy in a designated place with little mess. Make each child feel welcome and at home.
