The pandemic is challenging for parents but also presents an opportunity to focus on and participate more in children’s development. Spending quality time with your children strengthens the relationship, and while adding another task to your new normal stay-at-home routine may seem daunting, there is both immediate and long-term payoff. You will likely notice changes in your child including being more affectionate with you, cooperating with your requests, and having fewer tantrums.
