Looking after your relationships with your children during lockdown

We feel comfortable in relationships when there is a rhythm of coming and going: connection-time, me-time, connection-time, me-time... This is true for parent-child relationships as well. Parents need me-time to enjoy their time with their children. I think of it as relational breathing.

It can be challenging to maintain this rhythm in lockdown when we spend so much time together at home. We can end up swimming in the “lockdown soup”, not fully connecting and not having time apart either.

 

We need to take extra care to look after our relationships during lockdown to maintain that relational breathing. It helps us to enjoy each other’s company and to get things done.

 

As a working mum, I have been dealing with the same challenge since the first lockdown. In this workshop, I will share simple practices that help me to:

 

  • Look after me-time: decide what I want to get done that day/week, communicate it to my children and make sure that there is time for it

  • Show up for connection-time: be present, available and enjoy the time I get to spend with my children
