Visitation rights: Activities your 3-year-old child will enjoy
On behalf of Barli & Associates LLC posted in child custody on Friday, March 30, 2018.
The first rule of thumb when it comes to being a parent is “learn as you go.” The second rule of thumb is “don’t try to reinvent the wheel, many others have been in your shoes before and you can learn from them.” If you have just received visitation rights and you’re having a difficult time coming up with the best ways to pass the time with your child or children, do a quick search online and you’ll find lots of ideas.
For parents who have young children around three years of age, we have a couple interesting ideas that your children might enjoy:
Play with their senses: Little children are learning how to use and enjoy their senses. That means they want to touch just about everything and sometimes they get very dirty in the process. Anything that your kids can touch, feel and mold into shape is excellent for this – which is why Play-Doh is something you should definitely have on hand, and your kids will have a great time if you join in the fun.
Go for a hike in nature: There’s no better teacher than nature, and there’s no better adventure than getting outside and going for a hike in it. Your kids will calm down and be more peaceful with you the more time they get to spend outside. Take them for an outing – even if it’s only for a half an hour – every day you get to spend with them. Point out the trees, the rocks and the birds and name them. See if you can teach your child to name the bird by its call.
There’s no better time than the days you spend with your kids. If your child visitation rights are in jeopardy, make sure you understand your legal rights and options to ensure you don’t miss out on this time with your children.
