With technology and social media taking over our day to day lives, the bond between parent and child seems to be diminishing at an alarming rate. Creating a strong bond with your child is crucial for their development right into their teenage years and will help build healthy self-esteem and create a nurturing environment to help them with self-discovery.
Here are 6 ways to bond with your kids in a world filled with technology.
1. Dedicate a Day to Activities
Life is always busy and unpredictable, that's why it's important to set aside some time or even a day to spend with your kids throughout the week. It gives you both something to look forward to and will make great additions to your memory bank.
2. Take Part in their Interests
Whether it is playing guitar or playing basketball, when you take time to be interested in what your children do, it shows you care about them. Not only that, but it will give you both something to bond over and allows you to share a common interest.
3. Show Them Your Fun Side!
We can’t always be parents, it's important to be a friend too when the time is right. That's why it's important to show off our fun side once in a while. This will teach your kids that life shouldn’t be taken so seriously and that nothing is more magical than you and your kid sharing laughter and playing with one another.
4. Let Them Make Plans
Letting your kids make the plan is a great way to help your kids develop decision making skill. It's also a great way to find out what they are interested in doing and how they plan to manage their time with you.
5. Be There For Them When They Make Mistakes
We all make mistake, especially when we're young and have plenty to learn about life. Being there for your kids with an unbiased ear to listen to them will teach them it is okay to come to you with their problems and that you are always there for them no matter what.
6. Tell Them You Love Them Daily
A simple “I love you” can go a long way and its power is often underestimated. A strong bond is built on the foundation of both love and trust so be sure to express your love to your kids every day, however that may be.
