Life can be busy, but when it is, it’s all that more important to find ways to stay connected.
Here are 5 good ways to keep that bond with your kids despite the busyness.
Unplug and Be Present
Tech-free interaction is key to getting and staying in touch with our kids. Live in the moment and enjoy it. Kids grow up far too fast. Be in the moment as much as possible every day.
Bond Over a Project
We can all benefit from a team accomplishment. Schedule a basement clean up or a Saturday morning house clean. Then celebrate a job well done with a family reward.
Schedule Family Dinners
Eating together as a family every night may not be doable but schedule as many family dinners as possible and make the most of them. Incorporate some fun questions and silly games.
You can never hug too much. Kids of all ages need physical contact. Hug frequently, give shoulder massages, back scratches and foot rubs.
Life can be busy but taking the time to put a love note in your young child's lunch box, leaving a post-it note on your teen's bedroom door or sending regular thinking of you texts or notes of encouragement can go a long way to building self-esteem and making your child feel loved.
