Special Time With Your Child

ID-100116752It can be hard to find special moments to share with your child when you’re in the thick of raising him or her. There’s always some issue that needs attention – finishing homework, cleaning up rooms, fighting with brothers or sisters… the list is endless!

Here are some helpful pointers on how to create special moments with your child. Try one or two of them this week and let me know how it goes!

Ways to create special moments:

  • Spend time one-on-one with your child on a regular basis.
  • Let your child choose the activity. If he/she just wants to watch TV with you, that is fine.
  • When playing with your child, let him/her direct the play. This allows your child the opportunity to lead, without fear of judgment or punishment!
  • Making it brief is always better than not making any time at all.
  • Make sure you are relaxed and ready to follow your child’s lead.
  • Let your child know that you are enjoying his/her company.
