Cupid’s Advice:

The bond between a parent and child is deep. Love is immediately felt towards a newborn so it shouldn’t be difficult to connect with your baby. Cupid is here to help:

1. Spend time with them: Up to a certain age, your child will cling to your side. They will want to spend every waking moment with you and you the same. Don’t blow them off; find time and shared interests before your child grows up before your eyes.

2. Bond with them: Take them to school, the park, the beach. Wherever they want to go, be available to them. Even if it’s just to take the time to sit down and play dolls with them. Your child will remember how you nurtured them.
