Dad Helps Mum

If the kids are too young to complete certain tasks or prepare something themselves for Mother's Day, then dad can lend a hand and command the help of the kids to make mum's life a little easier. Dad should teach the kids how to think like a mum to get jobs done around the house. The hacks in the video below are some of the best ways in which dad and the kids can help around the house to get things even more organised. They may even help you teach mum a trick or two.

Learning and Development

Engaging and learning with the kids can be a rewarding experience for any parent. If you are new to parenthood and have young children between the ages of 0 – 10 then spending some time with your kids and encouraging their cognitive thinking power can certainly be rewarding for a mother. Thus, if you're planning on staying indoors and letting mum enjoy some quality time with her family this Sunday, why not suggest some of the following engaging games to help further develop your child’s mind and strengthen their bond too. It's a win-win situation as she gets to spend some precious time with the kids while you bag some brownie points for coming up with insightful ways to do so!
