Socialising with your children

If you work away from home or travel a lot, it is tempting to plan lots of socialising in the time you are at home, to make up for time spent away. Or, if you don’t live with your children, you may have got into the habit of socialising a lot to fill time.

From your kids’ perspective, though, a constant round of social engagements, particularly if they are not involved, can give them the message that they are perhaps less important than other people in your life.

By all means plan some social time, but also ensure there is lots of time spent with your children, just doing “normal” things.
