25. Spend Quality Time Together
It doesn’t matter what you’re doing with your children; what matters is that you’re taking the time out of your busy day and focusing on them. You could work on a science experiment, watch a movie, have a tea party, or work to learn something new. The goal of quality time is to strengthen the bond with your children. It also helps them develop necessary social skills.
Your children will benefit in many ways by spending quality time with you, even if they don’t feel this way at the moment. Some of the benefits include developing positive behaviors, improving academic performance, strengthening their self-worth, building self-confidence, and learning how to become a good friend. Another factor of spending quality time together is teaching your children how to compromise on activities they don’t like, so don’t be afraid to compromise on what you will do with your children.
