Let’s be honest, playing with your children counts only if both of you are having fun. We live in a time when playing with our children is often pushed aside. However, it is an important part of parenting and a good way to show that you always have time for them. Experts give a lot more importance to a quality playtime with children because they think it creates and reinforces trust and honesty between a parent and a child. In addition, this is a great opportunity for physical activities for you and a way to teach your child some new skills. A lot of parents, however, say that they are playing mainly due to a guilty conscience. They are well aware how little time they spend with them so they agree to play along although they do not enjoy themselves.
Set Aside a Playdate or Time With Your Child to Play
The first problem in these kind of games is that parents do not allow their children to run the game. As they adapt much faster in every discipline during game they assume dominance and that’s when children often feel more like observers.
Another unavoidable problem is the time discrepancy and the fact that children wants to play more often than parents do. This can be a burden especially when you have a less and less time devote your time to them. This gives you less time to think of a new creative game to play with your child so you often end up playing the same game all over again. Children are capable of doing the same thing forever. This repetition can be frustrating for parents that have static jobs and therefore these games become exhausting real fast. Theses repetitions may go on until they master a certain action or improve it until they get bored. For example, playing badminton can be interesting for the first 20 times but after that it can get tiring.
