Welcome to the quarterly Babwise-Friendly Blog Network Week! The schedule for this week is as follows:
Maureen wrote a great post today about making time for our children…not just physically but mentally and emotionally. We need to be sure we are present in the moment and even schedule time into our day to spend one on one time connecting with our kids. Some very simple ideas Maureen gives to add to your routine are things like family game night and reading time.
I love the idea of creating quality time with each of our children. Family time is also important, but I am a big fan of each parent having one on one time with each child. The child gets to pick the “date” or activity, and the only rule is that the whole time is about the child. No running errands!!
Maureen’s post is a great reminder to build this time regularly in our routines and schedules. Check out her post at Childwise Chat in its entirety for all of the reasons and ideas why this is important and how it looks for her family to implement.
