As the stack of moving boxes have gotten smaller and life in Hawaii starts to settle down, the energy in our house is beginning to ramp up. Not the fun kind of energy either. We’ve noticed that the kids are more competitive, quick to fight, and more irritable.
When we took a step back to see what was going on, we realized that we weren’t listening to our own advice.
If you have listened to the podcast or been around Family Brand for a while you know that we have a high value for being intentional about quality time. Whether that is with each other or with each of our kids, one-on-one time is important to us.
When we lived in Arizona we made sure to have a weekly “check-in” with our kids, we’d talk with each one individually, setting goals, and asking how we could support them, each week. This tradition was one of the things we lost during the move.
We are committed to getting back in the swing of things and added this tradition back into our family routine. We believe that bringing this back will bring more harmony in our family because when everyone feels seen, heard, made priority things seem to fall into place.
Today we’ll be talking about the simple steps we take to create powerful one on one time with our kids.
Learn the two specific questions we ask to connect and support our children each week, how we balance one on one time with the kids and simultaneously keeping our marriage a priority.
We think (and hope!) implementing it back into our lives will work to have things run a little more smoothly this week! Try this process with us as we jump back in and let's hold each other accountable! Share your successes, hiccups, and questions on Instagram, and watch our families change together. @ourfamilybrand
