Hey Freebs! I'm actually on a cruise ship as we speak, enjoying some time with the family. But I got my act together before leaving and recorded a quick video for you, about something that y'all have been asking me about a ton on Instagram.
As you probably know, we have 5 young kids…and yes…our house is always messy, and yes, they fight like cats and dogs. Lately we felt like their negative behavior was escalating, so we took something my parents use to do in our house growing up, and added our own Page Twist to it!
The good news? It's working.
This new method has helped us get quality one-on-one time with our kids, and has helped cut back on the incessant bickering that we had been plagued with for so long.
It's such a simple concept! I don't really know what to call it. To our kids we refer to it as “Tuck In Time”, “Special Tuck In Time” or “Your Day”. (Any suggestions on a solid name for it??) Here's a quick video about how we do it, why, and some suggestions for making it work in your home as well!
Watch the video online or click and watch below:
Crazy-simple, right?? It has been fun to see what songs they want to listen to, the things they want to do with us at night. Bubba and I trade off throughout the week so we each get 1x with each kid, and I look forward to “my night” with the kids so much!
Do you do anything like this with your kids? If you do, share below so we can learn how you do it as well! It's a simple thing, but I hope it helps bring some peace to your home as it has ours so far.
Gotta get back to the dance party on deck 8!
If you try it, let me know how it goes!
