Playing With Your Children
Strive to really be “in the moment” when playing with your children. Leave other concerns, responsibilities, and agendas somewhere else.
Plan some time to just play with your children – even if it’s just for a few minutes.
Ask your children what they want to do with you, and do it. Let them take the lead.
No matter what your children’s age, come up with an activity you can do together that will help them develop physically, emotionally, socially, morally and intellectually.
Playing means having fun, laughing and smiling.
Remember how you liked to be played with when you were a child.
It’s the best way to bond with your children.
Don’t underestimate the power of play in your relationship with your children.
Build a deeper relationship with your children and enjoy them.
Enjoy your children. They are God’s gift to you.
Don’t always play with all your children together, at the same. They each need quality individual time play time with you.
When possible – Give each child some quality individual play time.
“A three-year-old child is a being who gets almost as much fun
out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings
as it does out of finding a small green worm.”
“Kids go where there is excitement.
They stay where there is love.”
