How Can I Spend More Time With My Kids?

If you want to spend more time with your children, you will need to make sure you set that space specifically for them. As a parent, it can be difficult to find enough hours in the day to make sure that everything is done. From doing errands, working, and making sure that the house runs smoothly, it can feel like you do not have enough time to enjoy quality time with your kids.

At James D. Madden & Aruna P. Rodrigo, Family Law Attorneys, we understand how important it is to devote quality time with children. The hours, however, seem like a precious commodity. Our firm offers you some ways you can make the most of moments with your child.

  1. Integrate Schedules – It can seem like everyone has multiple activities they need to do. From going to school to stopping by the post office. Why not do that together? If you need to run errands, take your children with you. That way, you can accomplish daily tasks while hanging out with your kids.
  2. One – on- One Time – Nothing beats those moments when it is just you and your child. Make some room in your schedule where you and your kid can do activities together, uninterrupted by distractions. Whether it is a movie night every Friday or going on a Sunday morning hike, this quality time will be something you both remember.
  3. Break Time – Take time out of your busy schedule to just breathe. What better way to do so then with your kids? Even if it is only 15 minutes in the morning, take that time to catch up with what your child is thinking.
  4. Find Shared Hobbies - Do you and your kid love baseball? Are you both obsessed with Harry Potter? Is it hard to get you and your child to come indoors? Whatever your interests, find common hobbies about which you can both get excited.

We understand that it can be difficult to find enough time in the day to get everything done. Spending time with your kids should be priority. If you need assistance with issues of child custody or a parenting place, contact our San Bernardino child custody attorney.
