We are living in an era, which is defined by our technological possessions. Our financial status is an indicator of our well being and how we keep pace with the run of the world.
When it comes to Parenting, it’s crucial to keep a balance of all three of them: Technology, Financial status, and Pace of the world. What our children need is not the latest set of technology gadgets, no big pocket money but our dedicated time for kids.
I know, it’s tough to take out time in this fast-paced life where both the parents are working long hours. All I’m saying is, whatever little time you get from your schedule try to spend with your child in a quality manner.
One of the fondest memories that I have of my childhood is that when my dad used to make me sit on his shoulder and used to read stories for me. When my mother used to be in the kitchen, she used to give me some amount of dough for preparing pieces of bread for the family. I happened to spend hours doing such activities and learning some basic life skills.
You may try out some of the activities listed below and spend quality time with your child. These actions make you all closer as a family and hardly need any money for doing so.
Nothing could be sweeter than a scene of daddy & daughter tapping their foot together. A memory to be logged in a child’s good memory for life!
Go on a weekend picnic for spending quality time with family. Family time plays a crucial role in a child’s social-emotional development. Spending time with loved ones fills the day with positive energy and later age full of memories.
While the daddy is busy doing daily pushups, why to leave the child alone and give them time on screen? Involve them in your exercise routine as well.
One day the child is going to outperform you 🙂 And, this is certainly going to make a great memory for your child to cherish for their lifetime.
