Special Time Challenge

Special Time is one way that you can nurture your relationship with your child. To help you put into practice Special Time, I'll be running a Special Time Challenge on my Instagram account @muslim.parenting. Read the rule in the above graphic. 

If you missed out or came at a later date then no worries. Just download the Special Time Challenge Pack below and start the challenge at any time. Don't forget to tag me.
To understand exactly what Special Time is read more about Special Time. This is my blog article on Special Time. It'll give you more in depth details on how to do Special Time with your child.


Special Time is Different to Quality Time
Special Time is 10 minutes a day doing what your child loves to do. Quality time is once a week, at least half an hour to half a day, doing what you both love to do.


What are some things your child likes to do?
Ask yourself what your child likes to do. For young children, give then a choice of 2 or 3 to help them make the decision. Here are some ideas if your child gets stuck.
