Reconnect Routines: Establishing a Routine to Reconnect with Your Child

“Mommy, read to me.” “Daddy, let’s wrestle!” “Mom, can we go get ice cream?” “Dad, let’s play a game.” Some of these requests may sound familiar. These requests show the natural desire and need for our children to connect with us. According to Pam Leo, author of Connection Parenting, “Our effectiveness as parents is in direct proportion to the strength of the bond we have with our child. Securing and maintaining that bond is our primary work as parents and is the key to optimal human development.” As parents, we all want the best for our children, and maintaining a strong bond helps our children flourish in a variety of ways; however, when we are separated from them for eight or more hours each weekday, we need to find a way to reconnect.
