You can make it a point to sneak in one-on-one time with your kids, even if you are a mom of many. Everyday tasks like housework, homeschooling, and running errands completely get in the way of your focus to make quality time. We should be intentional about playing more and spending more quality time with our kids.
There was one point in my walk with the Lord that I wanted to do everything. I wanted to serve, I wanted to volunteer, I wanted to do Sunday school for kids, I wanted to be a missionary. However, the Lord quickly reminded me that my first ministry was my children. This made me switch gears and assure I was raising them and training them in the way they should go.
We often forget that they are whom we should be leading to Christ daily. Check out these suggestions for squeezing in some precious one-on-one time with your kids. Use these suggestions with any family size. It is easy to lose focus of spending time with your kids even with just one.
