Sometimes, your child just needs some one-on-one time with a single parent at a time. The attention can lead to newfound connection with your child. The quality time encourages the development of communication between parent and tot. It’s a good idea to schedule a lunch date to your local fast food restaurant or a picnic with one parent at a time. Toddlers get used to spending more time with one parent than the other. Dates like this can help shift that balance giving your child a chance to get to know both parents equally.
