The busy society we live in today has made us more and more distant from one another. We rarely have some extra time to spend with our loved ones, because we are always busy on our smartphones or with work. However, quality family time is a must regardless of whichever age your child might be. So here are some tips you could use to spend more time with your kids.
Take night walks
Getting your kids all settled in and ready for bed is one of the toughest challenges any parent has to undergo. Especially because your child might seem extra unruly and hyperactive close to their bedtimes. So the best way to calm down your child that’s far away from sleeping, is by taking a little walk. Get them all dressed up in their PJs and take a hike down the street with them. This way you can not only calm them down to get them ready for bed but you can also spend some quality time with them by asking them about their day and whatnot.
When things break throwing them in a corner and forgetting about it, is something you should never encourage in your homes. Instead use this perfect opportunity to bond with your child and fix these up. it is these during these times that you can teach them things that they don’t know and give them lessons of life. It could also be a fun thing you do with your kids to create a more common bonding area.
Make the best out of every second
When you drive your child home to and from school you might think that you are actually saving time, but what you are doing is actually losing out on those precious minutes. Instead driving to every single place and ‘saving time’, make a little extra effort to walk. Enjoy nature and connect with your child. Learn about their experiences in school and build a bond with them, this way in time even when they grow up they would come to cherish these moments and would enjoy them regardless of their age!
Play with them
No one’s mind is as creative as a young child’s. This because kids have endless limits in imagination, so if they want to be a flying unicorn they could. It’s all in the mind. So play with your child and connect with them by sharing the same joy with them, this way you could also spend more time with them as well.
Be a good parent and connect with them, only then would they too be open to tell you whatever that is happening in their lives!
