How Children Spell Love
Life is BUSY! I kinda hate that word, because I feel as though it can be glorified. The more "busy" someone is with an action packed schedule, the more "successful" or "hard working" or "committed" they are. But, no matter your version of what busy looks like, if you have a kiddo, there is some semblance of the word.
Guess what. Amidst all the busy, no matter how that looks in your home, all it takes is an intentional 10 minutes a day of uninterrupted time with your child to make a difference. Put it in your calendar like any other appointment each day to schedule the time. It will mean so much to them. If you have more than one kiddo, schedule each one in individually. Put the phone away, turn off the TV when you're doing this intentional connection time. Spend this time listening for their thoughts. Seeing their personality. Hearing their concerns. You can learn so much when you lean into the moment.
What do you like to do to connect with your kiddo??
