How to Spend More Time with Kids

Many parents at the end of the day find themselves completely exhausted. Take the child to school, collect his briefcase, pick up from school after school, teach lessons with him, prepare dinner, bathe, read before going to bed … Add to this the work and other activities that adult life cannot do without. In the evening, parents barely have enough strength to get to bed. And this routine is repeated day by day. Every day you spend with a small child seems like a week to you, and every week as a month.

And yet, when you celebrate the birthdays of a child, it seems to you that time goes at an incredible speed. In one instance, a one-year-old becomes a five-year-old, a little more – and he is already 15. Young parents are faced with this inexorable run of time when the children grow up right before their eyes. Every day brings new achievements and new reasons for a surprise. But the rapid pace of modern life often prevents us from enjoying all the features of childhood.

Many of us have heard of such new trends as “slow”, strict parenting, conscious parenting, etc. However, many experts say that the whole process of education is reduced to one principle: parents need to spend more quality time with their children. Children need to see who you are and how you live your life. And, in turn, they help you better understand who you are.

Not every day you spend with your child will be perfect, but one day, when he begins an independent life, you will feel deep satisfaction, because you gave him everything to succeed in life, and to yourself – everything to become successful parents. Time cannot be slowed down, but it can be optimized. Therefore, while the child is still with you and makes a mess in his room, go to him before bedtime to wish a good night.

Pajama walks

Bedtime may be too hectic for the baby. There is a good way to calm him down – a “pajama” walk. Of course, walking in pajamas is only worth it when the weather permits. This will allow the child to relax, and you – spend time with him, which could be spent on watching cartoons or computer games. The main element of such a walk is pajamas. When the child bathed, brushed his teeth and put on his pajamas, put him in a stroller (or, if the child is a little older, just put on sneakers) and slowly walk around the neighborhood. Do not take food for a walk (after all, the child has already brushed his teeth), do not play active games, you can not even talk. A short walk will lead to the fact that upon returning home, the child will be ready for bed.

Pizza evening

Family dinners are good on their own, but even more children like theme dinners. It can be an evening of pizza, sushi or Italian cuisine. When children are interested and fun, they willingly talk with their parents at dinner.

Walk more often

When we drive a car everywhere, even over short distances, trying to save time, we actually lose invaluable moments that we can spend with a child. The next time you need to take your child somewhere, go there on foot. A walk together is a great way to slow down and spend more time with your child. Tell him where you are going, and talk about what you see along the way. Hold his hand if he has not yet begun to feel shy. If you are taking your child to a training session or to a music school and usually then return to pick him up, you can bring along a work laptop or book to pass the time. After waiting for the end of the training, take the child home.

Play his games with your child

If you bought a game console for your child, learn how to play it yourself. So you can get in touch with his world. Why is it important? Firstly, games evoke a spirit of competition, and children are pleased to see their parents as simple people with human emotions. Secondly, even if you are not playing very well, it will be fun. Thirdly, many games imitate real actions (for example, football, basketball, and other sports). If you cannot really play these games with your child, computer games will help you. However, do not spend too much time on them so that virtual reality does not replace physical.

For those of us with kids in our lives it is obvious that we want to encourage them to explore and enjoy the things that they like the most. One of the things that many children enjoy is music.
