There's something magical about the way your children look at the world. They're filled with wonder and excitement, and it's so easy to forget that they're still little, growing up right before your eyes.
That's why taking a break from work is so important! You don't want to lose sight of the fact that your kids are still learning who they are and what they love—and that means you have to give them space to do it.
If you're a working parent, you know how hard it can be to find time to devote to yourself and your kids when there are so many things demanding your attention at home. You might feel like you're constantly rushing from one activity to the next, or that when you finally get home, there's so much left undone that it's not even worth making dinner before running out the door again.
But here's the thing: your kids are really going to miss having their parents around if they don't see them often enough. And unless your job requires that you're always available—or in some cases, unless your job allows for flexibility—you should always consider taking a break from work to spend time with them.
Here are some tips for how you can take care of yourself while also giving your kids some time together:
- Plan ahead by making sure you have enough time off in your calendar and available days off on which to schedule playdates or trips away from home.
- Try something new! Your children will love being around other people who understand them—so try something fun like a cooking class or art lessons together. Or maybe get out and hunt for treasure together! It'll be more fun than you think!
- Schedule some time for yourself every day—even if it's just 10 minutes of quiet time at home where you can relax and get some work done without distractions from the kids (or vice versa).
