People make so many relationships and each one of them stands in need of something more than a normal course of action to carry on. Be it a relationship with your parents, friends, siblings, partners or your baby, unless you add that extra sugar in your relationship, you won’t feel the sweetness of it. People talk about their love lives or professional lives, but most of the times they forget that back home they have their children who wait for whole day just to have a glimpse of them and play with them. Working parents often miss the trick to frame a healthy relationship with their babies due to work pressure which cost them at a later stage in form of unfaithful parent child relationship. Hence if they pay attention to certain tips and focus on their relationship with their babies in early days, then they may save it from becoming lifeless in future. Below are five most important steps that can help such parents to connect with their babies-
The first step to connect with your baby is to give him a hug each time you find him around you. Try to make him feel that you love him a lot. While hugging, he feels secure, safe and cared. It makes him love you more than anyone else. Hug is one of the best cures to any broken relationship no matter with your baby or your partner. With a hug, you can recollect all the broken pieces within few moments and put them in right place once again. So right from the morning when he opens his eyes till the night when he goes to bed, give him as many times hug as you can.
Play with baby
The best way to connect with your baby is to play with him and make him feel comfortable with you. As you play with him, he sees you as a friend and don’t hesitate in sharing anything with you. Play in bed or backyard or in swimming pool. Don’t let him go away from your eyes. Playing with your baby will not only help you connect with him, but also reduce your own stress level.
Give more time to your family than laptop and mobile
Draw a line between corporate life and family life. Anyways you spend almost 60%-70% time in office which is more than enough, so make sure you leave your office work back there in office. In other words, don’t bring your office tensions and work at home. As soon as you reach home, put your laptop and smart phone aside. Try to devote as much time to your family and kids as possible. Family time is meant for play, fun, dinner, outing, dancing and sharing your thoughts with kids and your spouse. So make full use of your family time in every situation.
Give him importance
When he asks you a question which may look silly to you, listen to him carefully, because it is anyways a doubt for him. He is still learning, so he is supposed to ask silly questions. Don’t shout or laugh at him, rather listen to him and clear his doubts in the best way possible.
Kids like it when you take them out for picnic or any other fun place. You can try it on alternate Sundays and even if it’s not possible for you to go on picnic, then try to go to nearby garden or movie or even a walk on the road with him. It will give you and your baby more time to know each other.
