Don’t Ignore Your Chilf
Love your child, give him/her some time …..
“Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.” – Theophrastus
We 21st Century parent, are busy working hard for our child/children, but remember being a
parent is more than paying bills and taking care of material needs. Families are busy these
days. After work, school, extra-curricular activities, meetings, housework and the other
inevitable realities of life, there isn't a lot of time leftover for quality time to spend with your
children which makes the child feel neglected, alone and sad.
Figurine out the time isn't always easy in a parent's busy schedule but if not done at right
stage would create major issues in life. Quality time usually results in a beautiful deepening
of the bond and hence plays a big part in helping children overcome frustrations, anxieties
and even trauma. The child is learning about their world and forming their self-image and
sense of themselves and their world through the reflection we give them throughout our days.
We as a parent should carve out some time, preferably a couple of hours each week, but even
ten or fifteen minutes in the day, to spend with our child, there's a kind of magic that happens
as the parent's attention really shifts in to the world of their child. When we truly put all else
aside, even for a few minutes at a time and really surrender to entering our child's world, at
whatever age, it's as if our eyes open wider, our hearts open wider, we can really hear what
our child is saying.
Our child's demands on our attention and very often as a parents we reject or resent to
provide them this quality time which makes the child feel so drained, shattered and alone. So
as a parent we should spend some quality time with our child.
