Do you have kids? What’s your parenting style? Do you find ways to build relationship?
Today we talked about how to build relationship with our kids. Even something as simple as doing homework with our children can strengthen the bonds between us.
Joan suggested a number of simple ideas like having a family project that everyone can work on together over a period of time through to picnics in the park.
One great idea was to take our children out individually to allow them to have time alone with us. She suggested taking one child with us whenever we have to drive somewhere to run an errand. We may not be headed anywhere special but that time with one parent and one child can allow conversations that would otherwise be crowded out. I took Emily with me yesterday when I needed to buy some fertiliser for our front and back lawns. (I use the word ‘lawns’ in the loosest possible sense.) It certainly wasn’t anything special but it was time together undertaking a task that had to be done.
What are the simple things you do to stay connected to your kids?
