    I totally agree with you parents should make a relationship with their kids a priority. I grew up in a household where emotion was never displayed. I never heard my parents say I love you to any of us. I felt unwanted for a long period of time, I came to realize that my parents were not trying to be mean that is how they were raised too. I make sure history does not repeat itself. My kids are like my friend, we watch TV. until late at night, we bake, do some crafting, play volleyball, you name it.

    A great post, In the humdrum of life I often find myself distracted by my smart phone and end up missing some cute moments with my toddler. I try my best to keep it away and not get distracted by social media and reminding myself that my time with my daughter is more important than everything else.

    Yes, it is so important to spend quality time with our kids! You listed some great ways! As you mentioned we all get so busy, so yes set that time aside for them as they will become better adults and parents in the future! Thank you for sharing!

    Love these. I do my best to always look at my children and grandchildren in the face when we talk. So easy to keep looking at what I am doing – so this has been a great habit to hold on to.

    What a lovely post, we need a reminder at times that our children need our time and love more than we realise and how important it is to give them as much of our time as we can x

    Thanks for the reminders! They don’t want much from us, just our time. I find unless I’m intentional about putting my phone down, I spend way too much time on it:(

    It’s really important for parents to build a relationship with their children, and this should start while they are young. If you pay attention to them while they are young, you are there when they need you I think they will grow up having that assurance of a relationship from you, the relationship will just flourish.

    This is lovely! Relationships of any kind are so important. No one wants to get to the end of their life and realise they’ve been focusing on the wrong things. Some great tips here 🙂
