Parent-Child Expression of Love thru Connectedness

How do you connect with your toddler/child/tweener?

In today’s world full of distractions – work, email, apps, games, TV, YouTube and so much more – how do we make meaningful connections with our child/children?

Let’s face it, the 24 hours from generations ago seem longer than our 24 hours these days. Why? Well, traffic (if you are in Metro Manila may account for 4-6 hours, hey that’s already 1/5 of 24), mindless scrolling and seemingly endless waiting.

However, the below shows how we can establish stronger connection with our kids with only less than an hour. More or less 60 minutes of properly done and strategically scheduled practices with your children. Of course, more meaningful time is always better. Plus, the mindless activities and unproductive habits could be curbed for more purposeful time.

Check out the infographics below.

Try it and share with us how it worked for you and your child. 🙂
