Are you worried about neglecting your children because you and your spouse are always away at work? If yes, then there are simple ways by which you can achieve a nice work-life balance and make your children feel loved and special. Make use of these 7 pointers when you feel like doting on your kids.
1. Spend weekends with them
Try to plan stuff with your children during weekend such as going to a zoo, a circus, a movie or make a birdhouse at home. Now that you are a parent, you are responsible for your offspring, and hence, it’s your duty to be with them as much as possible.
2. Take part in their activities
Make them feel belonged and cared for by attending and participating in their lives. Attend PTA meetings, school events where parents are invited, play dates, kiddie parties, etc. Try your best to be present at all such events and show what a super mom you can be.
3. Ask them about their life daily
During dinner time, make it a habit to converse with your children about how their day went at school. Ask them questions about their studies, friends, crushes, games, etc. Become a friend to them so that they feel good about having a parent who cares to know what’s happening in their life.
4. Get them goodies from time to time
Children can feel on top of the world when they are given goodies and gifts. Probably once or twice a month, you could indulge your child by getting him or her that toy they have been coveting since long, or oblige them with ice cream or sweet treats. You could also whip up their favorite meals from time to time.
