Toddler- how can you organize your time to have enough time with toddler?

Ola - posted on 12/06/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hello all,

I feel very bad as I work full time and not home before 6:00pm by which time my 20 months baby is just back from nursery.

I feel terrible as i then have to cook dinner,,etc and don't have enough time at all where I can sit, play and cuddle her a lot.

She has been resistent to other toddlers taking toys from her and now she has stopped and she seems very helpless around other toddlers. I'm feeling very guilty that I don't spend enough time with her to strenghten her feelings and personality or give her enough time.

Anyone else in same mood?

i wouldn't worry, and just make sure that you MAKE time... on the weekends, in the mornings, at night.... when you put her to bed, perhaps you can sit her in your lap and sing songs.... when you get her dressed, giver her cuddles, on the way to drop her off, or from picking her up, sing songs with her. i was a full time employee with two kids, and at one point i was also a full time student with a full time job with two toddlers, so i know what you mean when you say you have no time... but you just have to make the most out of the time that you do have... and sometime you just have to let some things go, like don't worry if the house is a mess, until AFTER your kid is in bed.
