50 Amazing Ways to Steal One on One Time With Your Kids

I have been focussing a lot lately about how important it is to plan specific one on one time with your children. Why? Those special moments show your child how important they are, it reinforces how much you care and it allows you an opportunity to deepen your connection and bond with your child.

Sometimes, finding special moments to spend that one on one time with your child can be a challenge, but thankfully Karen from Simply Fun Families has made it SO easy for you!

A few times a month, I try my best to ensure that both of my children get the opportunity to spend some one on one time with me. Sometimes, it is inviting them to do errands with me and sometimes it is something extra special. I truly believe that no matter what the situation is, my children enjoy that one on one, uninterrupted time with me and I know that it helps to strengthen and deepen our relationship together.

What do you enjoy doing with your children in order to spend quality time?

    My children are now all adults but I must admit it was very difficult to find time to just do things with the children, let alone as individuals. I have 7 children so there was always tons and tons of washing, prep work for meals, cooking, homework, ferrying to various events, parents meetings at school – the list goes on and on and on 🙂

    Life happens and we don’t always have the time that we want to spend with the children, so cherish every moment that you can

    I’ve got a 2 yr old, and I’m a stay at home mom, so I spend all my time with my girl. Our challenge is finding fun things to do around this small town of ours. We make it work. I’ve also got a teen, who thinks it’s just not cool to hang out with mom and/or dad. Unless we are taking him out shopping for gadgets etc….lol. But when he was younger, we always had one on one time doing things at home or around the big city we lived in. Good times!

    I have a 14 month old son and a 5 year old son. We do so much together but when the baby has an afternoon nap on Sunday, my older son and I go to get a donut, go for a walk and go to the park for some one-on-one time alone. I spend a lot of one-on-one time with the baby because I’m a SAHM. I like to spend time alone with my older son too to make him feel special. 🙂

    Twin boys I always tried to take 1 to town on shopping days as our time together, or go for a walk.

    Spending time with your children is the most important thing you can do. We liked to hike the trails together. So many interesting things to see along the way.

    As a parent spending time with your children is one of the most important things you can do with your child,before you know it they will have grown and left the nest.

    Its important to make sure you get one on one time with your child. They grow up so fast you need to enjoy your time together

    I think it’s so important to spend one on one time with your kids. I do it with my nieces and nephews as well. 🙂

    I love taking Kira on errands. At home it’s so busy and there’s always something going on, we have a teenager still living here and 3 birds, everyone has either an ipod/phone/tablet or some have both. Distraction is fast and furious here at home. We don’t have a vehicle, so even though she protests at first, I take her with me. We walk, we talk. She talks. .. lol. There is nothing to interrupt ‘our’ time, anything we see or experience on our time out, we’re doing together.. win win all the way around, I’ll just be very happy when she realizes she can carry SOMETHING!
