  • Making time for affection

In our parents’ days, they finished work in the early afternoon and got home in time for a game or a romp with their kids. 

I can remember the excitement of seeing Dad/ Mum arrive home from work.  Daddy would take us for a swim or a walk, or invent games to play – all of which gave us many opportunities for physical contact and affection; Fathers bring a rough and tumble kind of affection that children adore, Dad will make sure our homework was done on time and run school activities with us so we are ahead of the class.

Today, with longer work hours, there seem to be fewer opportunities like these, yet children still thrive from this kind of personal attention.  It is reported that parents today spend 40% less time with their children than their parents did with them!

Parents need to modify their busy schedules so they can once again relax and enjoy family life.  They need to make play time with their family important again; time to sit and talk or listen to music; time to wrestle on the carpet; ride piggyback and laugh a lot.  These are moments that parents and children remember when they look back on their lives.  These are the moments that create a childhood!

How do you balance things out in your home?
