Note to parents:

Moms, play catch with your son. If you break a nail, or get a little dirty, that’s okay. Your relationship with your son is much more important.

Dads, go shopping with your daughter. Give her your honest, open-minded opinion. Don’t complain about how long you’ve been in the store. Your relationship with your daughter is much more important.

Don’t make your children feel like they can’t connect with you because you’re different genders or you have different interests. Your relationship with your children is much more important.
