Maintain a dairy where you note down all the important activities for the day, including the “Time with Kids”. This helps you sort out unimportant activities and keeps you on track, thus saving your time to spend with the kids.

Plan a fun-filled activity for the weekend

You are able to spend very little time with your kids on weekdays. But, that’s OK till you are interactive and listen to what your kids have to say. The quality of time is always important than the quantity.

However, you can plan for fun-filled activities that you and your kids can do together on the weekends. So, keep your weekends free for your kids.

Parents work like donkeys every day only to give their child a brighter and secured future. But, if you think your office can’t run without you, you are mistaken.

The office can hire another employee, but your kid can’t have another parent.

So, limit your office work to the office only. Do not carry its burden to the home where your kids wait to spend time with you.
