We hope Tori Spelling gets well soon! While she's recovering, we didn't know who to turn to for our firsthand parenting tips!
That is, until we remember her amazing hubby Dean McDermott! He has some great ideas on how to make your kids feel special!
If you're a busy parent, especially one with multiple children, you have to check out these tips:
1. Set a weekly “dad” date. Go for a bike ride, walk the dog (or goat!), have lunch at your kid’s favorite restaurant, or get a pedicure together – whatever your kid likes to do.
2. Choose group activities that everyone can participate in – whether you’re crafting, cooking, or playing at the park, make sure there’s something fun to do for each member of your family.
3. If you have babies in the house, let your older kids share in the baby raising experience. Not only will they be taking some of the work off your hands, they’ll learn to be responsible and will take pride in caring for their younger siblings. There’s nothing sweeter than hearing one of your older kids reminisce about caring for a younger sibling when he/she was a baby.
For more child bonding activities, and of course some amazing recipes, be sure to check out Dean's blog Gourmet Dad!
