Spending Time Together

Explore ways to bond with young children through playful, everyday interactions during daily routines.

As you watch the video, consider ways to be present during everyday life: 

  • Turn chores into a game (for instance, at laundry time, count the clean socks and match them up).  
  • On a long car, train, or bus ride, take turns picking a category and naming things in the category: fruit, smells, birds, pizza toppings, and so on. 
  • Take a few minutes to just watch your child play. As you do, breathe deeply and remind yourself to enjoy the moment.
