Magic time is special one-on-one time that only you as a mother can give your child.
It is about putting all the washing, cooking, cleaning and work duties to the side to spend quality one on one time with your child.
Magic time is where a child’s self-esteem will be boosted, as Mum is spending time with just me – “How special am I”! It is also a time when we can be a role-model to our children, showing them how to play, share, communicate, discuss and interact with other people.
80% of children’s learning is done through role-modelling which is a powerful tool for us Mothers to use.
Magic time does not have to be hours long or a chore for us to do. It is really all about getting our time management right to be able to co-ordinate some down time with our children. Whether it is waking up 10 minutes earlier or spending less time on social media or letting go of our need to have a perfectly cleaned house.
Your children do not care whether or not every single section of the kitchen cupboard is cleaned spotless or if their singlets are ironed! All they care about is spending time with Mum. These are the moments that they will look back upon once they are older to cherish and remember their Mum. Not if the beds were made perfectly or the cobweb underneath the TV cabinet is cleaned! It is about making those special memories and moments to last a life time with your children.
We often forget that we are only blessed to have our children with us for a short-time before they head out into the big wide world!
It goes fast, so enjoy every moment and create those special times with your children.
Leave your children a legacy of spending amazing time together rather than a legacy of having everything perfect!
How can you spell some magic time into your relationship with your children today?
