Tips that can help make parent-child bonding more fun

Modern moms are now defined as women who juggle parenthood and career with skill and grace. However, while work and motherhood truly go well with each other, they can also often clash. Realistically, there will be times when even the best of women can feel overwhelmed by all their responsibilities.
An international study as cited in the article of Richard Adams, Education Editor of The Guardian of UK, concludes that the bond between parent and child plays a crucial factor in child development. The same report says that being a working, modern mother does not increase risk of having an insecure attachment to kids. Rather, it is the quality of childcare that determines the level of bond between parent and child. Especially for this month of mothers, check out below three tips that can help make parent-child bonding stronger and more enjoyable.
Schedule and organize activities
The first thing all working mothers should do is to learn to figure out her priorities. What if your client meeting falls on the same day as your kids’ school performance? The chances of rescheduling your client meeting is definitely higher than having to change the date of your child’s school event. When it comes to being there for your child’s important life moments, don’t forget to prioritize and make adjustments.
Participate in your kids’ hobbies
Set an arts and crafts time slot for your kids or be an active participant in any of their chosen hobbies. Extracurricular activities help a lot in the development of children’s behavior, and being there with them as they learn and explore their interests can bring you closer with each other.
Create fun-filled bonding moments
Every busy mom knows how hard it is to bond with their kids when they have so many other familial responsibilities to do. One good solution to this is to merge the two. Involve your kids in normal household chores like grocery shopping and frame it in a way that is interesting to them. For example, you can give them budget they can use to buy the snacks that they want, so long as they make sure they choose nutritious variants.
One good pick is Gardenia’s newest product, the Pocket Sandwich. Especially made for kids, this newest treat comes in two variants, peanut butter and chocolate. Made with two slices of soft and luscious white bread, Pocket Sandwich has no edges and is perfectly sealed, making it a convenient snack for the kids and not messy to eat.
Gardenia’s peanut butter and chocolate Pocket Sandwich are both high in vitamins and minerals like Iron.Folate , Vitamin A, B1 and B2. Gardenia Pocket Sandwich is baked fresh every day too, making it the perfect snack if you want to share a pocket full of happiness with your little ones. This treat is available for only P15 (SRP), and is available in all leading supermarkets and convenience stores.
Modern times call for modern ways, even when it comes to parenting. Though we have now strayed from the traditional image of the mother and shifted to a more well-rounded woman, you can still keep your connection with your children strong in your own creative ways.
