Making Time For Your Kids

February 3, 2017

When life is busy it can be hard to be intentional about making time for your kids. The whirlwind of to do lists, carpool, cleaning, and cooking is overwhelming to say the least.

I know I’m not the only one who has been staring at my phone, scrolling through Pinterest, and trying to figure out how to make my flower beds the best on the block this spring. Only when these little insignificant things were taking time away from my family did I realize that I needed a change.

This isn’t to say I don’t engage in things like this anymore. Yes I still want to have a beautiful flower garden, but it is no longer a priority of mine to have the best on the block. Instead of trying to be perfect all of the time I am trying to engage more with my family.

It doesn’t take much. All kids need is a few of your minutes per day of undivided attention to fill their love tank. I read the book Hands Free Mama by Rachel Macy Stafford and it inspired me to actually look at my daughter in her eyes when we are having a conversation rather than focusing on something else (like my phone!) and giving her a half hearted response.

Here are 15 things you can do to make time for your kids and give them that one on one interaction that they need so badly.
