Quoting ♥ inÍs:" So the other day I saw in a blog a mom talking about how important it is to give time to each child. ... [snip!] ... it is good and it increases bonding between mom and a child..? Or do you think it's wrong in some way? Please explain "
i think it's a great practice. Does it ensure that each kid gets equal love and attention? No.
But, it certainly lessens the chance that one or 2 are going to feel slighted and left out.
Honestly, in bigger families, if one kid is kinda "low maintenance," he/she is at risk for getting less all the time. That may not be a bad thing in the longrun, but as a parent, i'd like to make sure i doled-out my time as best i could. some kids just need more and some need less.
I'll never know with mine as she is an only child.
