I’m a big fan of the book The Five Love Languages. I try so hard to apply what I have learned from that book to my marriage, but did you know there is a book dedicated to your children? And the workplace?
I first read the book for my children when I started working outside of the home. I could just see my kids falling apart, they were both acting out in ways I hadn’t ever seen! Once I read the book I realized that they were suffering because their primary love language was Quality Time! Once I went back to work the amount of time we spent together was cut drastically.
I’m constantly looking for quick and easy ways the kids and I can spend quality time together without spending a ton of money.
A few things we do:
- Play a quick game
- Cook dinner together
- Make cookies together
- Make sugar scrubs, lip balms, or other oily creations together
- run/walk (it’s REALLY fun to do the C25k trainer app together)
What are some things you do to fit quality time into your day with your kids?
