TIPS TO STRENGTHEN PARENT CHILD RELATIONSHIP

1.Spending time with kids

Spending time with kids is the first and foremost step in achieving strong bond. I have always heard and I second the thought that quality is important than quantity. It is not about how many hours in a day you spend with your child, instead it’s about how you spend every available minute with your child.

2.Get them involved in home chores

When you involve other family members specially kids, home chores get done fast and are a lot of fun. So firstly it’s good to maintain a good home chore routine so that it does not become a burden for you, and secondly it’s essential to get your little ones involved.

Start with giving them small tasks. On completion of task always appreciate them. If they find something difficult , firstly encourage them to do it by themselves and if needed be there to help them .

3.Plan family picnics and trips

This is my favourite part and I hope it is yours too. Planning outings can be difficult at times due to busy work routines. But they are very essential. You should plan vacations atleast once in a year. It will definetly freshen you up. Just a little prehand planning and packing for your trips can help you loads.

Apart from planning proper vacations atleast once a year you should plan frequent out door picnics with kids and family. These are relatively easy to plan and are much fun. You can simply plan them on weekends.

Trips and picnics are a great source of bringing all the family close specially kids, because it is the time when you are away from routine stresses and deadlines. So you have ample of quality time to spend with family. This will help you stay calm and build a strong and fruitful relation with your child.

4.Listen to them

One relatively under-rated step and tip in developing enduring relationship with your kid is listening to them. And that to passionately. They have a lot of stories to tell all the time. They might seem never ending. But this jumbled up cocktail of words is very important for them and they choose to share them with you.

So when ever they want to share their little all important stuff with you give them due importance and time. Try to comprehend their tiny broken sentences and provide them with solution or appreciation, as required.

These 5 minutes before sleep can be spend by discussing how did the day go, what one good deed they did or even a small story time and definetely with lots of hugs and kisses.

    I agree! I try soooo hard to make the time for family adventures, especially because growing up, my brother and I didn’t get to experience too many, since our parents worked all the time. I now find myself as a parent, along with my partner, in the same situation…work work work! Its so hard when you gotta pay the bills = (

These are wonderful suggestions! Having raised three kids and now Yaya to five, I can say wholeheartedly that all of these are important. The older they get number four, listening to them, becomes crucial to maintaining an open and vital relationship. Awesome read.
