Welcome to Whānau Mārama Parenting

Everything counts

Quality time can be as long or as little as you can manage, at the end of the day it all counts.

But there are a few rules to making a moment, long or short a quality time.

  1. Focused attention

Make to focus 100% on you children. Whatever we decide to do we focus all our attention to what our child is doing. If its 5 minutes or 15 minutes, our focus is what will make our children feel loved.

  1. Make sure it’s something they enjoy.

If this time is for your children try and find things they like. Sometimes we may choose an activity we like but our children might not enjoy.

  1. Do it consistently

Give your family quality time consistently.  Even if I’m tired I will fit in a bed time story, except on the weekend. Even I need a rest.
