There are very subtle, simple ways you can connect with your child on their level.
My sons are now in their twenties, I woke up this morning with vivid memories of playing video games with them.
Video games were not my most favorite thing to do, but the time we spent together is priceless.
Since the time they were allowed to play video games was regulated, it was special. Video game time was monitored. My husband and I made sure they spent time on other things such as creative play, reading, board games, homework and their nightly routine.
I always found a way to join in their fun on their level.
When they were younger. I would read them a bedtime story every night, sometimes several books at a time.
More times than not this special time right before bed turned into great discussions of wonder and sharing. As they got older they would read to me.
I was always on the look out for ways I could join them at their level.
