Whether you have a year-old toddler in your arm the entire day or a school-aged boy in your radar the whole day, your responsibilities as parent goes way beyond catering a toddler’s needs or eyeing a boy’s wants. You’re not just there to love your child, you’re also there to support your child in every step of the way. You’re also not just there to guide your child, you’re even there to learn from your child no matter how what it takes.
If you’re a parent, it’s only right for you to slow down at least once in a while – not just for you to replenish all that energy from running back and forth/in and out of the house to make sure that your child is safe all the time, but also for you to recharge that spirit of yours that your child will depend on for many years to come.
Here are some ways:
Play dress up with your child at least once a week.
Cuteness overload – that’s how it will be if you play dress up with your child. You can either go for a vegan theme where you get to dress as Popeye and your child in a personalized vegan onesie or a comic theme where you get to dress in a personalized hero suit and your child as Ironman.
Go on a cartoon marathon with your child at least once a month.
Admit it or not, we all loved cartoons. Some adults even watch them until now, so why can’t you for the sake of bonding more with your child? Just remember to watch kid-friendly cartoons, though. You wouldn’t want your child to grow up hitting someone else just because he thinks it’s a monster.
