  1. Talk until you’re blue in the face.
  2. You are not responsible for your children’s end choices.
  3. Never measure success by how you are doing today.
  4. Failure happens.  Learn and rebuild.
  5. Define your terms for yourself and your kids (they can’t read minds.)
  6. Find ways to celebrate together.
  7. emotionally invest in relationships outside of your children.
  8. Love wins.
