How to Make Time for Your Kids
Make time for your kids with the TV Off – Life On campaign
Parents often wonder if kids have gotten off track these days. They think that kids these days simply aren’t as disciplined and respectful like they used to be. You may have even noticed a change in your own child’s behaviour and have wondered what the problem is.
Before we get too analytical about your child’s behaviour, we have to take a quick peek at our own lifestyle. Let’s ask a few questions.
- Do we work a lot?
- Do we work too much?
- How often are we home?
- How many times have we engaged our child this week?
One thing to remember, in times of stress, our children need us more than ever and we should try everything possible to help keep the connection.
Surf believes in 6 core values of Love, Empathy, Sacrifice, Loyalty, Righteousness and Forgiveness – all of which play a very significant role in the child’s life with parents as the major conveyor.
It is important to understand that half the battle of winning our kids over and helping them progress through life is just being there for them. They need to see our strengths, our weaknesses and how we handle different situations. Our kids’ eyes are always on us, and it is up to us as parents, to lead them until they are able to do so themselves.
Teaching kids to make choices is an essential part of the job of a parent. All these activities build skills, giving children a sense of what they can do, but time spent with family gives them a sense of who they are.
However, instead of worrying about how many minutes you can spend with your children each day, focus on turning those minutes into memorable moments.
One good way of doing this is to make sure you spend time doing some fun activities with your kid every day.
So, take a pledge that you will take out time from your busy schedule and spend time with your little ones. Be it going outdoors to reading a book to building castles on the beach. By doing this, the bond between the child and parent will only become stronger and to add to it the kid will learn a new activity in the process.
Hence we say:
Don’t Just Promise,
Believe in it!
Take the pledge
To be the proud Parent
You always wanted to be!
We are waiting for you to come forward and take a pledge!
