Family Time Challenge Day 2: Avoid Multi-Tasking Your Family!

Posted by   + Show Post

How many times have your kids told you a story, but you were so consumed doing something else that you didn't hear a word they said? Moms are master multi-taskers, but when it comes to spending time with your family, it's better to slow down and do one thing at a time. The time we have with our family is precious and deserves our undivided attention. Today's challenge is to avoid multitasking your family!

Children need to feel like they are the focus of your attention. When your child tell you about something exciting, look them in their eyes and share their excitement. If you are talking to your SO, do it without the TV on or while looking at your cell phone.

One mom who participates in all 10 days of the challenge will be entered to win a $50 American Express gift card!

The only time I multi task is when there's something that HAS to get done, like cooking a meal or getting out the door. Otherwise, my email can wait, my article can get a bookmark, whatever. My kids and my husband are more important to me than something I can stop for a minute to listen to them

I do find myself doing that sometimes but I am trying to work on that. I try to make them know I am listening and that I really care.

Ive caught myself multi-tasking when my dd was talking to me and I had to make myself stop and listen. That doent happen very often, I always take time to listen when she talks to me.
