10. Follow Their Lead
You should have one particular day where you just have to follow your kids. If you are a fun mom, then you may allow your kids to take you to bed, allow them to decide what should be cooked, how to arrange the rooms, etc. It will make them feel responsible and would be fun at the same time.
You can do a lot of fun with your kids, but you should always remember the limits – never overdo anything, otherwise it may get difficult for them to understand when to have fun and when to be serious. Teach them to laugh even in the stressful moments, as long as it is under control.
