How Much Time Should You Spend Playing with Your Kid?
As a parent, you may often feel like you are spending enough time playing with your kids. There is no denying that parenting is hard work, whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or currently working. Raising a child while also having to handle a job and keep together a house is no cakewalk.
So as parents, it is understandable that you may want some alone time. A moment where you can just read a book, watch a movie, or maybe get some peaceful sleep always helps. But chances are that you actually never get to do these things simply because you might feel guilty later on. Many parents often feel that when they do not commit their time to their kids to play with them during their free time, they think they’re bad parents. As such, the pressure to spend as many hours time possible with their kids can often lead to them feeling physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted.
However, the good news is that according to research, you don’t have to spend as much time playing with your kids as you may think. A 2015 study found that there is absolutely no significant correlation between the amount of time that mothers spend with their kids and the kid’s future development. This means that parents understandably tend to put way too much pressure on themselves only because they do not want their children to miss out on anything.
