The busy commuting lifestyle can be brutal for young parents.  It’s hard enough to find time at home, and especially when children are young, it’s hard to get everything done before bedtime, and everyone out the door in the morning again.  This course has great practical help for parents of children up to age ten, along with worksheets and discussion questions to help you process what you’re learning.

If you’re parenting with a partner, ask them to watch or listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

This course is also great in groups – start by checking it out alone, but then invite someone else or a couple to join  you.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Parenting Children - August 28, 2012

Day 16 – Love Language – One to One Time

•  our children crave to be noticed by us and crave our attention
•  special time with each child develops their self-esteem and their ability to relate to others
•  can be difficult for us as parents to recognize this need and to fulfill it
•  the more children we have, the more planning and conscious effort it takes
•  channels of communication are opened through spending one-on-one time with our child(ren)
•  can transform a child’s behavior

eye contact:
•  can be used either positively or negatively
•  children learn by modeling - if we do it, they'll do it
•  easy when they are babies - but don't give up eye contact as they get older
•  good eye contact goes hand in hand with active listening

Do you have fond memories of 1:1 time with a parent? What memories can you create with your children one on one?
