Making time for your child builds deeper connections

By Claire de Franck, Editor - Kids in Perth 30 Jun 2020


With the pressures and chaos of modern living, investing in quality time with your child can sometimes feel impossible. Yet, quality time is crucial in terms of raising children who are less stressed, more secure, confident and settled.

The professionals at Meerilinga, including Parenting Course Facilitator Belynda Smith, believe strongly in this Special Time and the importance of it for both children and parents:

“Many studies have shown that ensuring a child feels a strong connection with their parent, even if it’s only for 15 minutes a day of focused one on one time, plays a huge part in helping families form a deep bond. It allows parents to really understand what their children are feeling, experiencing and learning about, and ultimately share in truly magical moments.”

In Episode One of the Special Time Series, join Belynda, as she talks about the importance of Parenting by Connections ‘Special Time’ and discusses the brain science behind why it is such an effective tool to build connections in your family.
