I Will Savor Their Childhood – Sharing the Little Habits that make a Big Difference for Enjoying Parenting

by Alissa Marquess on December 28, 2012

In 2013 we are going to BE there. We are going to delight in our families and notice the ways we can connect and enjoy each others company every day.

Join me as we learn which small habits make the biggest difference for enjoying parenting.

Join CwK to find the little habits that make a big difference for enjoying parenting - making the most of childhood in 2013!

This is not about being perfect.

This is not about sweeping changes that won’t last.

This is about making incremental, yet powerful, changes so that we can parent regret free.

We hear our grandparents, our mothers, and random people at the grocery store tell us to treasure every moment.  We hear about, or devastatingly, experience the death of a child and we KNOW these people are right about treasuring this precious time.

We KNOW we want to really be there and savor our kids’ childhood, but the house is a mess, we’re out of dog-food, late for work and the toddler just peed on the carpet.  How can we mesh our ideals with reality?

12 Habits of Happy Families

In 2013 Creative with Kids will present one habit per month for us to work on together, along with simple ideas for implementing this habit.  We’ll start in January with creating good routines, move on to taking care of ourselves and throughout the year delve into things like finding simple ways to give our kids positive attention and gathering a “toolbox” of quick activity ideas that work best for your family.

 To follow along subscribe to the newsletter for weekly updates on this project, as well as special articles and resources offered just to subscribers. 

Also, let me know – what habits do you think help the most with being able to enjoy your kids?  And what is your biggest obstacle to enjoying them?  What resources do you need?  I’m still working on the year’s plan and I’d love your input.
