Parents must make time for kids

All parents want to spend "quality" time with their children.

All parents want to spend "quality" time with their children.

Quality time is time spent doing an activity that is meaningful to parent and child. It is time to get to know each other. It is time spent focusing attention on the other person and sharing thoughts and feelings.

Spending time with our children is fun and educational for us and them. Much of a child's learning takes place in the many informal situations that occur daily when we are together getting dressed, talking over the day's happenings, dealing with problems, interacting with people outside the family, taking baths, eating and so forth.

The activity does not need to be costly, but it must satisfy both the parent and the child.

Children need to know they are loved unconditionally. It means that even when a child misbehaves, we love and accept the child and provide support.

Develop positive self-esteem by communicating the value we feel for children. Encouraging and loving words provide a child with courage to try new things.

A child learns trust from being trusted by parents.
