Being a parent is an arduous task and you need lot of
patience. You have your expectations and at the same time you do not know what
they are up to the next moment. You have to understand them and deal with them
friendly and patiently, no matter of what age they are.
It is obvious that you must be preoccupied with various
problems in your life. But remember if the kid is small he is not aware of all
this. Another important thing is that you need to spend
quality time, which means forget about every other thing and listen and get
completely involved with your kids.
Spending time with children has become very important these
days because most of the parents are working and they do not have sufficient
time to pay attention to their kids.

Tips to Spend Quality Time with your Kids
It is very necessary for parents
to spend time with kids no matter how busy they are. Here are some helpful tips
for parents to spend quality time with kids.
Spend Time with Kids
Take some time out everyday and no matter how busy you are
or how tired you are any day, never miss it. Schedule a time that is
exclusively for you and your child. Make sure you do not get interrupted and
disturbed. This time can be just before bedtime or right after coming from your
office or after sometime. You can choose this time according to your
convenience. Just keep in mind that your child will be waiting for you at that
time and there should be no question of missing it.
Try to Have Family
If possible have family dinner daily. This should be the
time when your entire family is on the dining table and everyone interacts with
each other and tell his or her day out. Be prepared to pay attention to your
childâ€™s way of speaking especially if he is a teenager. Make sure he shares
with you everything and tells you all he did in his school. This is important
and is not possible with force or in one day. You will have to spend everyday
some time with him and then when he will find confidence in you, he will make
you his friend.
Discuss Big and Small
Issues with Your Child
If any day you had a very bad day and you are upset or
simply exhausted, just tell your child about it. Let him sit by you and have
your touch and care. If he comes forward and massages
your head or feet, let him do that. He loves you and wants you to be fit and
Avoid Spending Time
only in Playing
When you are spending time with your child, do not just play
or watch television, try to talk to him. Ask him about the day at school and
share some of your happenings also. Just be careful to tell him anything about
your boss or any colleague. This might lead you to embarrassment if he drops in
your house in future.
Spending time with children does not mean that you have to
do it in a routine way. The child must feel that you want to spend time with
him and do not want to be disturbed during this time. Have a good relationship
with your child and start this as early as possible.
