When you have more then one child there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day. Finding time for each individual child is very important. This will help your child develop a special relationship with you as a parent. It also will create lasting memories for both you and your child. That doesn't mean it is not important to have family time. My motto is, a family that plays together stays together.
Setting up schedules or mommy or daddy time is the best way to remember these special times for your child. It can be as simple as a lunch date for the two of you or a date night out to dinner and a movie. When times were too hectic and our budget didn't allow for eating out, I would take only one child with me to the store. The time we had together was special and the child would get to pick out something for us to bake at home with the other children. If dad has to run errands, the child can go with him as a helper. Making the child feel special. The goal to your individual time is for you to listen to their heart. I found, as my children grew older, our alone time was when they would confide in me privately about things that were on their mind. I never had to ask them to share their heart I just listened.
your child is never too old to not have mom/dad time. Every child wants to feel important to its parents. If there are multiple children in the home, an older child may not be able to find the personal time to discuss with you private issues. Making that time available to them, without them asking for it, shows them you understand their needs.
If you find that you did not find time during the day to spend personal time with your child, do not panic. Tucking your child into bed and listening to their day will make a world of difference to your child. My parents had a half hour interval between each child. The youngest going to bed first and the oldest last. This would be a good situation if you wanted to spend quality time with each child. Remember, it isn't the quantity but the quality of time you spend with your children.
