There’s another Fixer Upper celebrity baby on the way! What are some ways to be sure you give attention to each of your children when you have a big family?

Cupid’s Advice:

Big families are tons of fun! At times, it can be overwhelming, but there’s never a lack of excitement. It’s normal for children to feel deprived of attention in larger families, so if you’re looking for ways to help find the balance, check out these tips from Cupid:

1. One-on-one time: Sometimes, all your kids really want is some quality time with you and your partner. Consider giving each of your children one day a month (or whatever works for your schedule) to spend the whole day with you. Make the day about them and give them the chance to choose what they want to do! They’ll totally appreciate the quality time with you or with your partner.

2. Emphasize group activities: Group activities are always a wonderful way to include everyone! Whether you play a game together, bake a bunch of cookies, or visit a local park, there are plenty of ways to spend equal amounts of time with all of your kids. Plus, these activities are big memory makers that are cherished long down the road.

3. Manage your schedules: If you have a large family, it’s important to figure out a schedule that works. You should always encourage your kids to try new things and be ambitious, though you also have to be practical. Too many extracurricular commitments will hinder the time spent with each of your children. If your schedule seems overwhelming, perhaps one activity at a time is a good option!
