4 habits that help you connect with your child: For moms with a lot of work and little time

A new day begins and you have hardly rested because you spent the night thinking about how to solve the problems at work, the problems at home and at the same time to take care of your child needs.

Maybe today you will be able to do all the tasks that you have pending and watch, even half a chapter of your favorite series. But you did not count on something: your son woke up with a stomach pain and it is so intense that you must take him to the doctor.

Here we list some techniques that you can carry out to connect with your children. You will need only a few minutes a day and, yes, a lot of attitude.

1 Start the day with a positive phrase

Take two or three minutes in the morning to look your children in the eye and say something positive to them, for example: Have an amazing day, I love you! or I am very proud of you! Don’t forget to hug and cuddle them.


2 Organize the meeting of the day

It does not have to be very long, or at a specific time: 20 minutes will be enough to share a fruit, a tea or a pack of cookies. How about reading a chapter from your favorite book? Just remember that distractions like having the TV on or looking at your cell phone are not worth it.

3 Food with everyone

Make sure that during at least one of the three meals (breakfast, lunch or dinner), all the members of the family get together.

During that moment, take advantage of each one to talk about their feelings, emotions and everything that is on their minds.

4 The special moment before going to bed

Before putting your children to bed, take 15 minutes to talk about whatever they want. You can support yourself by asking them questions like: What was the best thing that happened to you today? Is there something that worries you or you want to ask? or Tell me one of your dreams in life.
