I have been reading many stories from different moms around the world and picked up that many have a schedule for playtime with their children. It has got me wondering as to how important this is. I do not have a specific daily playtime with my son because of my work. I'm normally awake at about 4H30 in the morning for my morning run (at this time he would still be asleep), thereafter I would get home have a bath and prepare for work. I leave for work at 07H15 and return home at 17H30. ( we do however spend a little time together in morning before I go to work). By the time I get home I'm exhausted and hardly have time to sit and play, However most of the time when I get home he would be out playing with his friends (the neighbours kids) which I normally don't like to interrupt. I normally just let him know that I'm back give him a kiss and a hug and let him get back to play.
I would like to know if there is anything I'm missing out on cause we dont have a playtime together. What are the advantages of playtime and anybody with ideas on how I can incorporate a playtime into my schedule.
I do however spend lots of time with him during the weekends.
