Make meaningful connections with
Kids need to spend enough quality time with their parents, guardians or caregivers. They can benefit immensely from spending time with their parents. It also has a positive impact on their emotions, behaviors and personality as they grow.
What matters isn’t the amount of time you spend together, but how you make use of that time. Some activities you can share with your kids include:
- Create daily connections
Create time daily for making face-to-face connections with your kids. However, if that’s not possible, you can do it in other ways.
For instance, you can leave a note in your kid’s lunch bag, letting them know how much you love and care for them. Alternatively, post a note on their toothbrushes or write a motivating saying on the house’s shared whiteboard.
- Cook together in the kitchen
Pick days when you can prepare simple meals with your kids in the kitchen. Let them join in the activity and prepare their favorite meals. They won’t just learn how to cook, but also spend quality time with you.
If there’s not much time for cooking, grab a few snacks to eat together as you talk and share. Find out how your kids are faring on and how they feel.
- Eat meals or snacks together
A family that eats together, lives together. Make sure that everyone eats together on a round table to share the moments with each other. You can catch up on many things while eating breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Other activities include:
- Playing games together
- Engaging in art – painting, drawing, coloring etc.
- Taking baths or showers together
- Going shopping for grocery
- Read bedtime stories together
Play hide and sick game
