While most parents like to overindulge their children, the truth is that your kids just wish to spend more time with you. Even if all you can afford is playing with mud and sticks, it is a special time they won’t forget. Our favorite childhood memories always include our parents. Your children think you are a superhero and nothing will ever change that as long as you are always there for them. Ask a Westlake Village child custody attorney about how you can request more time with your kids.

Parents are very busy these days. After a stress-filled week, and other responsibilities, there isn’t a lot of time left to spend with your kids. But spending quality time with your kids can benefit you and them in so many ways:

  • You and your children will feel loved – It is a great feeling, and important for every age. It builds your self-esteem and self-worth as well as your children’s.
  • Learning good behavior – Your children model you because parents are the people they spend the most time with. So you can help your child grow into a healthy and confident adult.
  • Build on their strengths – As you spend more time with your children, you will begin to see their strengths and also identify areas they may need to improve.
  • Sharing their feelings – There are some things your children need to talk about. The more time you spend with them, the more they will open up. As you comfort them and share your own experiences, your relationship will grow and become stronger.

But I don’t have time to play with my child

It is particularly difficult for parents of young children as they tend to have more needs. So how can you find balance? It is all about priorities. While there are always things to do, spending time with your child should be at the top of the list. It is easy to get caught up in the routine and take your children for granted but doesn’t. Remember they need your presence in their lives.

Spending a whole day, or just a few hours of quality time with your children can have a profound impact on their lives. Children see life from a different perspective. Their innocence and goodness can remind you of the beauty of life. They feel so deeply and live with passion. Everything is always so new and exciting to them. Their presence in your life can transform you. They never get tired of you. They want to explore the world but they need you by their side to keep them safe and encourage them along the way.

If you need help in your journey as a parent, contact a Westlake Village child custody attorney and explore the types of custody and visitation available. Spending time with your family is important as it will benefit everyone in more ways than you think.
