INVOLVE THEM IN YOUR KITCHEN WORK
You can always give them some small work like cleaning the vegetables or arranging the dishes on the table. The child feels good after being given the responsibility and your work also gets divided. Wonderful, isn’t it?
ASK A FAMILY MEMBER TO HELP
You can ask your husband to manage the kids. After all he took the vow to be with you during both sad and happy times. If your husband can cook then you guys can take turns. And if you live in a joint family then you can ask the grandparents to read stories to your kids or share their childhood experiences with the kids. It is a great way to bond and learn.
LET TV, PLAYSTATION, COMPUTERS KEEP THEM BUSY
With so many gadgets available in the market today, life becomes little peaceful when your kids are busy playing around with them. Let them play their games or watch their favorite shows till you cook. Make sure they don’t get addicted.
Most moms let the idiot box baby sit while they cook. But if you are one of those who do not like her kids spending too much time in front of the screen then give them something to play with. Board games like snakes and ladders, monopoly to play among themselves. If you have just one kid and no one is there to play with him/her, you can give him/her some colouring or activity books.
GIVE THEM SOMETHING THAT OCCUPIES THEM
TALK WHILE YOU COOK
Kids trouble you because all they want is your attention. Start a conversation with them, ask them about their day and you can also talk on some interesting topic with them.
