Instituting a daily Quiet Time is one of the BEST things I’ve done for my kids (and for me!). But I know it’s not always easy to do it, especially with strong-willed kiddos. I hope my three tips will help you to start this routine in your family!
– 3 Takeaways for Quiet Time –
- Remember how good quiet time is for your kids. It will help them learn how to do deep, creative, independent play.
- Set them up for success by making sure they have interesting and novel toys that inspire creative play and a way to track the time.
- Expect that you will have to train and teach your kids to do Quiet Time. Start with a very short timeframe, and work up from there.
