Many community libraries offer children’s story time and other gatherings for parents of young children. Attend these events with your child if you can, and also borrow books to read to your child or with your child.


Be spontaneous

You may not be able to do so on a regular basis, but taking a spontaneous afternoon off to have fun with your children will be good for you all.


Set a treasure trail

Leave clues for your child to follow while you are apart.
