Do you ever wonder how large family mothers manage to spend individual time with each of their children?
The 4 Moms are sharing our strategies for doing just that. Here are a few of the ways I get individual time with each child.
Take a child along with you.
I rarely go anywhere alone. Whether I'm making a quick trip to the bank or attending a cooking class, I try to take a child with me to enjoy some individual time.
My husband attended an out of town funeral recently and took one child along. Whenever he plays in out of town golf tournaments, he takes one of the children with him, too.
Plan special outings.
My oldest suggested once a month special outings for each child that we have been keeping for the past 2 years. My children LOVE these special times and look always forward to their month.
Schedule time with Mom in the kitchen.
Whether kids are cooking dinner or cleaning up afterwards, and whether they act like it is a treat or a torment, you will get some good talking time in while everyone else is otherwise occupied.
