30 Day Courageous Parenting Challenge: Day 5

‎30 Day Courageous Parenting Challenge Day 5:
“Kids spell love T-I-M-E.” – John Crudele
“The best inheritance a parent can give his children is a few minutes of his time each day.”

Today's challenge is to be more present as a parent. I don't mean physically there. (sometimes that isn't always possible with custody or other things in life like a parent being in the military). Make an effort to interact with your child more. If you are at home, turn off the tv, or your computer, and spend some one-on-one time with them! Go on a walk. Talk about their day. Do something you know that they love. Tell them you love them and have a fun tickle time. If you are parenting from a distance, get skype set up. Send a fun box. Call and read them a story. Make them a game to do. Send them notes saying you love them. (Recordable cards are great by the way! I can guarantee you it'll be some of the best $5 you ever spent!) Whatever you do, find ways to do it more often! Aim to do something special with your child every day.( It doesn't have to be expensive!Today my son and I made awesome binoculars out of tp tubes taped together. He had a blast.) Time together and the memories made are priceless.
