Time is a rare commodity for today’s parents.
Most parents leave the house early in the morning and only come home with a tired body late at night – leaving no time for kids. Ironically, kids want nothing but time from parents. Time to play and time to connect.
Is it too much to ask for for a kid?
Are you one of the parents who find no time for kids? Then you should stop and ask yourself this question:
What am I busy for? Am I having the priorities right?
Okay, let's do something about it. Listen to what this mother has to say about making time for kids. If a mother of 9 children can have spare time for her kids, I think you can do the same too. Of course, much easily.
If that’s not enough, Martie’s husband is currently in Iraq and she’s all alone with her kids at home. She has to handle all by herself.
Curious to find out how she finds time for the kids and herself?
Why not stop what you are doing now and read Martie’s 14 tips for finding time for kids.
These are my favorites:
5. Turn to your child when he or she speaks to you, and be sure to make eye contact. Make him or her know you are truly listening.
14. It's possible to make time for TV at night, so why not turn it off and play a game, play hide-and-seek, read out loud, have fun together instead?
