There can be times in family life when families somehow disconnect. It may be that each member of your family has their own schedule and they all overlap hence not getting to see each other much. It may also be that you have not made enough time for your children because it has not been physically possible. Either way you family may have become detached. The result of this is you and your children missing out on the essential interaction of sharing information and experiences.
So how can you re-connect? You can reconnect by going back to basics and getting to know your children again – their feelings, their interests, likes and dislikes. This can be as easy as sitting reading a book, playing a game or having meals together. Your child will feel valued and loved that you are showing an interest and that’s what they want most of all.
The Christmas and holiday time is perfect for re-connecting. What one thing do you plan to do to re-connect as a family in the coming weeks?
