Life together is most important

“I’m unconvinced by the notion of ‘quality time’. Time with my father wasn’t memorable because he made sure we did exciting and spectacular things together. Mostly we did mundane things. But we did a lot of them. I treasure my childhood because I had quantity time. Time that is not merely occasions. We did a fair bit of camping. There were special moments, of course, but mostly it was just hanging out. Non-verbal stuff.” – Tim Winton, author and playwright

  • You don’t need to plan big ‘special’ events to spend time with your child. Everyday moments have just as much value
  • Find time every day to just be with your child. Those will be the moments you both remember forever!

Tips:

Give your child something that belongs to you while you are away

If you will be away from home for a while due to work or travel commitments, younger children especially will love to have something of yours that they can hold, smell and even sleep with while you are away.
