Tips for Spending Quality Time With Your Child

Connect daily with your child, even if not face-to-face. Leave notes or messages of encouragement.

Have a daily “connect” time with your child

Create a special ritual for you and your child—something that can be done every day. For example, let your child choose and read one book with you at bedtime.

Create a special ritual for daily routine 

Tell your child you love her every day. And tell her how important she is to you and how she makes you feel.

Play with your child, even if it’s during bath time or outside before you drop her off at preschool. Every little bit of time makes a positive impact!
