What better way to remind each of your children how special they are than to spend some one-on-one time with them? The easiest way for us to do this is to spend time with one when the other is asleep or in preschool. Other moms swear by the pass-off to dad as soon as he gets home-- then everyone can reconnect before dinner together. Our house is a bit too hectic for that, but we do like to have one-on-one time.
During that "special time," we usually read books. Other activities could be gardening or sewing together, or making a crafts project, or cooking, or building a tower, or whatever else that child wants.
I find doing this daily calms the child and makes them feel, well, special.Pin It
