The 10:00 PM news hasn’t even started, but you’re too exhausted to watch: who can stay awake that late? Car pools, lunch bags, after-school activities, dinner, homework, bath time, bedtime. You do it all—on top of your own job—and have just enough energy left to drag yourself to bed so you can wake early and start the routine all over again. Each day with young kids feels like a week, each week like a month. Yet as every new birthday passes, childhood seems to be moving at warp speed: five-month-olds become five-year-olds, then 15-year-olds in the blink of an eye. How can we possibly be working so hard to get through each crazy, chaotic day with our kids, and yet have the years fly by so quickly? How do we make our time with kids more meaningful and memorable? Dr. Harley Rotbart, pediatric specialist for the past 32 years and current professor and vice chairman emeritus of the department of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital Colorado guides us in taking the mundane, exhausting routines of parenthood and turning them into special parenting events. Come learn how to redefine “quality time.”
