You've heard the phrase "Time is money" and I think that quote is so true, especially as it applies for special time. Think about it: Spending 5 minutes a day in special time is a very short amount of time with a huge reward to show for it. Special time improves your bond with your child, your child's attachment, your child's communication skills, pro-social skills, focusing/attention, self-esteem, positive behaviors and so on. AND it's fun! You get to play with toys with your child, while you are teaching them. Who better to invest in, then your child?
Tell me what's your favorite thing about special time? I love playing tea party with my daughter and I think this little set with different sweets is adorable!
