Spending time with your children plays a very significant role for the child’s growth and development. The children observe you and how you react. This means when you do sit down with your child, they will notice whether you are actually paying attention or not.

Quality time with your child is not just sitting next to them, it requires a lot more input. You must engage them in the activities your child is doing because it shows them that you are interested in what they are saying. It shows them that you value what they have to offer.

It’s about sitting with them, listening to what they have to say, playing with them and doing activities that your child is fond of. It teaches them a lot of different things, some of them being:

  • It enhances socialization among children, they will understand that it is good to mingle with other children and play with them
  • It teaches them the concept of sharing and communicating what they are doing
  • It will foster a loving and caring environment – this kind of positivity and encouragement
  • It increases a child’s self-esteem, self-worth and confidence
  • It fosters a lot of emotional growth and optimism in the child because they feel very secure and satisfied

There may be times where you want to spend time with your child, but you don’t know what exactly to do, or you may be tired. There are different ways in which you can spend time with them, some of which are:

  • Asking your child to help you out in the kitchen
  • Helping them do their homework
  • Playing different kinds of games with them
  • Watching a movie, or spending time watching your child’s favourite cartoon with them
  • Reading a story to them

You can turn mundane tasks into opportunities to spend time with your child. Make your child’s interests yours, you will get to know a completely different side to them.

I have always been inclined towards psychology. I took my first psychology class in 9th grade and I never looked back. I have studied the subject for around 10 years and have had various experiences within the field. During my undergraduate program, I started working for a franchise called Brighter Minds. I was a facilitator for 4 years where I conducted a whole-brain development program for children between the ages of 5-15 years. It worked to enhance a child's observation skills, emotional integration, focus, attention, memory amongst many other things. I have also done a course called Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching from ICHARS (Institute of Clinical Hypnosis and Other Related Sciences) to get certified as a Life Coach and NLP Practitioner. I am also a meditation practitioner, I am part of the Heartfulness Practice. Some of the issues I talk about in my blog will have reference to the material I get from Heartfulness. The practice has equipped me to be a healer as well, which brings me to one more skill I have, which is Polarity Healing. Polarity Healing is a way to balance out the positive and negative charge we all possess as humans. When these energies are imbalanced, we feel all sorts of unpleasant feelings like anger, frustration, irritation, and restlessness, etc. Polarity healing balances out the energies and brings it back to a normal state, reducing unpleasant feelings. I have created this blog as a way to collate my knowledge and expertise and build a credible platform of information. I learn new information and techniques every day, this a way for me to share it with the world.
