As a busy working mum, do you find it difficult to take a break and spend quality time with your children? It can often be the curse of the successful mumpreneur who is doing so well with the business, and enjoying the financial rewards it offers the family, that little time is left to enjoy quality time as a family.
If this sounds familiar to you, how does that make you feel? It is likely you set up your business so you could work around your family and attend to their needs in a flexible manner. Why not go back to basics and realign this as one of your key goals? The summer months offer the perfect opportunity to claim back some family time, especially when the children are off school.
Finding suitable activities to do with your children is actually easier than you think. Simply ask them what they would like to do with you and how they would like to spend this special time. Quite often children like doing simple things, such as reading books, playing in the garden or enjoying some messy play. Some may even like spending some time talking and catching up with you one-to-one. Spending quality time is vital to nurturing a strong and stable parent/child relationship. It enables your child to feel secure at home and boosts their confidence in everything they do. If you struggle to find time naturally, schedule slots in your diary.
If you find it difficult to concentrate solely on your children at home with the phone ringing and emails coming in, go out and find a fun activity to do together elsewhere, such as walking in the park, buying an ice cream or sharing a milkshake in a local café bar. Whatever you choose to do with your children, ensure you all enjoy the activity. This will make it a fun time and give you an incentive to shut down your computer!
Don’t feel guilty about not having enjoyed quality time in the recent past: you have probably been rewarding your family in other ways, such as providing them with new clothes and nice treats. Reclaim your relationship with your children, allow yourself a break from work and enjoy special moments that will last as great memories forever.
