Look for 10 minutes to connect. This short amount of time is long enough to begin building a bridge of connection.
Start here – look for 10 minutes to connect one-on-one with one of your kids.
Both in good time and in bad, strengthening our loving connection with kids is possible and healthy for our relationships. When things are going well, getting a bit of one-on-one time feels fun and special. When things are going poorly – often what’s really happening is our kids are asking for attention. Behavior is communication, and the way to communicate effectively is to connect with someone so you can see things from their perspective and understand what’s going on.
Look for a short chunk of time during your day to take just 10 minutes to connect with one of your kids. You can grab an opportunity that presents itself, like when you’re driving one of your kids to sports practice, or when the baby falls asleep before their older sibling.
