2. Spend More Time with the Kids
In today's busy world, it is increasingly difficult for parents to set aside quality time with their children. Planning organized, beneficial activities is a healthy way for adults and kids to enjoy spending time together.
When heading out for an afternoon with the kids, make sure the activity of your choice is child-appropriate and legal. On December 6, 2011, Shateka James, 25, of Fort Pierce, FL., was arrested after allegedly bringing her three kids and a neighbor's child along on a shoplifting spree at Walmart. According to police, James tried to leave the store with over $1,000 worth of clothing and electronics. She allegedly had her children transfer the merchandise from her shopping cart to Walmart bags in the store's shoe department. James was arrested, and her children were handed over to their father.
