The Importance of Quality Time with Your Kids

We make jokes about creating products that will entertain our kids just enough to FINALLY leave us alone for five seconds, but, in all seriousness, the ultimate goal of our products is to bring families together, rather than serve as a “distraction.”

Moms & Dads: It’s essential that you spend quality time with your kids. That may be obvious, but maybe you needed to hear it again! After all, you are reading this article for a reason...

You may be unsure how to enjoy time with your kids. Every time you bring out the coloring books or offer to bake cookies, it turns into a disaster. We’ve all been there and get it.

Kids are hard, loud, and exhausting, but they’re also kind, loving, and rewarding. Each child is different; therefore, each phase of life is different. You may have had a great experience with the so-called “terrible twos,” whereas infancy almost killed you. Each child is special in their own way, and you just have to figure it out as you go!

There’s definitely no one-size-fits-all to parenting, but there’s definitely something to be said about fitting in quality family time.

Did You Know? Your Kid Thinks You’re a SuperHero.

Yep, you. It may not seem like they ever listen to you, but they listen way more than you think, and they look up to you in everything you do! You are the example that they are told to follow. Maybe you’re at that stage where you just keep butting heads with one another; it doesn’t mean that they don’t like you. It’s just a phase. You have to remember you are the parent, and you can’t let your emotions get the best of you.

When you feel aggravated by them, instead of pouting with them, get down to their level, and live in their world with them! When you spend time with your kids in their setting, it’s going to release so much stress on their end, and make them feel so important!

Don’t overthink it, just do it!

You don’t have to be the mom who bakes the perfect unicorn cookies or the dad that teaches basketball every night outside for hours. You just have to make time to spend time with them. Don’t complicate it, do it. Whether that’s sitting in their room playing with their toys, reading a book together, watching an interactive show and participating with them, or having a tickle-sesh before bed! All you have to do is make it known that you enjoy spending time with them. It will go a long way in how the entire family interacts.
