How can I take a bigger part in my child's life?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
There’s a good chance your kids are interested in something you could find interesting as well, but you’ll only figure that out if you slow down long enough to look at it. One of the best times to do so is when you’re together at the dinner table. All families should make better use of this sacred time. Even if the family can only get together once a week, it can become the event that everyone looks forward to and where everyone gets to express themselves;, hopefully it will become a beloved tradition your children impart as they grow older and begin families of their own.
