Are you feeling guilty for not spending enough time with your kids? Do you only get to see them before you rush off for work, and when you get home at night, they're already asleep. We list some suggestions on how parents can spend more time with their kids.
Let’s admit it, homework is a drag. Have you heard anyone say, “Wow, homework! Gee, I can’t wait to get home – after several hours of lessons at school -- so I can dig in to these exciting take-home quizzes and algebraic problems!” We didn’t like homework when we were kids, and we HATED homework when we were in college, so why would we expect our kids to like them? Let’s not delude ourselves – we could not get our children to like homework. So, how do you save your wife from going ballistic anytime she learns that your child did not do his homework?
You can be your baby’s playmate. While the wife occasionally plays with the baby, it’s never like how we dads play – we play hard! In fact, this is a natural tendency for dads. Since we don’t spend much time with the baby as much as moms do, we tend to make up for it by being more fun. Daddy = fun! When you do this, expect your baby’s face to light up whenever he hears your voice or sees you coming.
