How to Spend Quality Time with Kids

How to Spend Quality Time with Kids

It is extremely important for parents to spend quality time with kids regularly even if they are busy. However, due to changing lifestyle, most of the parents are not able to spend quality time with kids. Managing work and raising kids is like walking the fine line. Read on to find some parenting tips for spending quality time with kids.

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. Also, nowadays people prefer nuclear families, which automatically lack the presence of elders in the house. So, the child is left almost alone. You need to give him company apart from paying attention to his homework and daily routine.

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 Everyday

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 Dinner Daily

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 child’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 energetic always.

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.

First thing is you need to be 100% while with children. No other thought or background process to be continued. Many times we just say I spent and hour with children but the mind keeps itself busy in office thought. How would one call it quality time.

I agree with Payal. If you do not spend quality time with children and let them understand you and you understand them, they will not listen to you when they grow up. So, I make it a point that I keep communicating with my kids even if I am out. I just stay in touch with them through phone and ask them whether they have completed their homework and did they have their lunch on time. When you are not personally present with kids, you can keep in touch with them through phone.

It is very important to spend time with kids. It helps in bonding and becoming best friends of your kids. If you do not spend time with kids they will not listen to you when they grow up. Therefore, it is very necessary for every parent to spend time with kids and understand them. This is how they can also understand you as a parent. Parents should not take this issue of spending time with children for granted.

I always make sure that I reach on time for dinner so that I can spend time with my kids. My kids also wait for me for dinner. It has become my habit now and I can not have dinner without my kids. On weekends we go out for dinner sometimes. I also make sure that I take them out in park or for a movie during the weekends. We spend time together every weekend. It is very necessary for parents to spend time with their children and have very friendly relationship with their kids.
