You hear horror stories from other parents or read about the terrible twos. As your child reaches 1 ½ years old, you come to the understanding that you are soon to be a parent experiencing the “terrible twos.”  It tends to be that when a child turns two (I have seen my two nephews go through this stage) – what Mommy says doesn’t go.

With the busy lifestyle that parents have these days it’s hard to find a moment to spend quality time with your kids. One of our office moms sent me some techniques that her husband uses when he is not working, in school or doing homework to spend time with his gorgeous girls. Since he regularly cooks (go dad!), he takes it as an opportunity to bond with his girls and teach them the basics of cooking. He also recommended going for walks in the park because it not only gives them quality time together, but has the dual purpose of exercise for the family! Since it’s often dark by the time things settle down after a busy day at work, another option is to go star gazing or read bedtime stories – it can be perfect for some one-on-one time.
