"Want Nothing Time"

You probably engage in "want nothing time" with your child don't even know it!  To be there for your child, to be in their presence, simply sitting with them for even a small amount of time reaffirms that your child is valued and important.  For your child, he will understand that he does not have to constantly try to impress you to get your attention.  You are coming to them to share time together.  For you, "want nothing time" can also serve to empty your busy mind of distractions and just be with your child.

This idea is part of "30 Days to Transform Your Play", and what a great series it is!  Read all about it here.
