Just in Time — “Quality” Time

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Trying to spend at least ten minutes of quality time with each child each day is good advice.  A better way to say it is that “spending frequent, brief amounts of time (as little as 1-2 minutes) involved in child-preferred activities” is one of the most powerful things parents can do.  Quotes surround words from Turner, Sanders, and Markie-Dadds, who created Triple P — Positive Parenting Program – (http://www.triplep-america.com/), an evidence-based program designed to increase parental confidence and competence in raising their children.
