There are many ways to achieve a trusting relationship with your child. Sometimes, with a busy work schedule and other tasks that seem to take up a lot of time in the day, you may feel like adding another activity can overwhelm you and your child. The following activities are designed to compliment your busy schedule and make the best out of whatever time you have with each other.
Post Dinner Dance Party
After dinner, it may be common for you and your child to wind down with some movies. While you are doing this together, this activity doesn’t require communication or is it likely to be a meaningful memory for your child. Instead of turning on the TV, blast the radio and have a dance party! You will all instantly feel a rush of excitement and are likely to create lasting memories.
How much do you really know about your child? Put it to the ultimate test! Have your child ask you questions about themselves and see how many you can answer. To switch things up, switch roles and ask your child the questions. This is a great way to get to know each other better.
This is a fun, quick and tasty activity that you and your child will both love! Pick a day of the week that you both look forward to. A good option for this would be to make the special snack on Friday’s. Every Friday, set aside some time for you and your child to get in the kitchen and make a sweet snack for you both to enjoy!
Waking up to uplifting tunes are both a great way to start the day and will ensure you have a huge smile on your face first thing in the morning. This simple exercise involves making up a song that you and your child can sing to each other in the morning. Be creative and silly with it!
