Gardening


Gardening reduces stress and allows you to spend quality time with your daughter and son. Gardening requires a lot of time and energy. Although, it is difficult to find empty spaces in the cities, you can certainly create a small garden in balcony or terrace. You can discuss seeds, farming, etc with your children. Surrounded by greenery and flowers, having a garden is a great way to have some interesting conversations with kids and spend time with them.


Games and Exercises

Children will certainly appreciate it if you spend some time playing their favourite games with them. Games, exercises, etc are activities you can involve your child. Outdoor games like football, basketball, cricket etc. can increase stamina and blood circulation whereas yogic exercises can be relaxing. Small girls also like to spend time with dad. You can do these activities with your son as well as daughter. You can play games like badminton, football, basketball, etc in the building compound or do a simple activity like yoga at home.


Teaching

You can teach your children and help them with homework.  Assist children with home-work and other studies. Academics is a great way for parents to bond with kids. Encourage your son and daughter by meeting their teachers on Open-Day and attend their school events like Sports Day, Annual Day, etc.

It is not only a mom's job only to help kids with school related activities. Dads can also take an active interest in children's academics and school work. Ask kids about their future plans and what they want to do with their career. You can also give them advice.


Shopping

Shopping is a great way to spend quality time with children. Visiting the neighbourhood mall, eating at restaurants, etc will allow you to spend some time with kids. Some malls have various games as well. You can also take kids to the bank and teach them to operate the ATM machines, etc.

Teaching children about banking will help them to understand the importance of money also.  Shopping helps you to understand your child's likes and dislikes as well. You can know more about their hobbies and interests. Shopping together as a family or shopping alone with kids is a fantastic way to know them better.


Storytelling

Everybody remembers the wonderful storytelling sessions from childhood. It is one of everybody's best memories. Telling stories to your kids is a great way to ignite their imaginations. Children love fictional stories which involve a lot of magic, drama, etc. You can create funny stories to tell your kids.

Children can be told stories at night time before going to bed. You can tell your child incidents from your own childhood, Independence Day stories, etc. You can either read from books or make up your own stuff.  Children will forever remember the interesting stories which were told to them. Children love to be entertained.
