While Tori is still resting and recuperating, we thought we’d share some thoughts from Dean on how to make each of your kids feel special. Dean recently posted a blog on his website on the topic, and we think it’s such great advice on how he spends quality time with each of his kids that we wanted to make sure all of you saw it! Here are some of Dean’s pointers for making time for each of your kids:

1. Set a weekly “dad” date. Go for a bike ride, walk the dog (or goat!), have lunch at your kid’s favorite restaurant, or get a pedicure together – whatever your kid likes to do.

2. Choose group activities that everyone can participate in – whether you’re crafting, cooking, or playing at the park, make sure there’s something fun to do for each member of your family.

3. If you have babies in the house, let your older kids share in the baby raising experience. Not only will they be taking some of the work off your hands, they’ll learn to be responsible and will take pride in caring for their younger siblings. There’s nothing sweeter than hearing one of your older kids reminisce about caring for a younger sibling when he/she was a baby.

To see the rest of Dean’s tips, head on over to his website The Gourmet Dad.

How do you make time for each of your little ones?
