Go on a Rendez-Vous
Take time one on one with your child. They'll feel loved…and so will you.
Rendez-Vous is the French word for appointment. It’s a one-on-one time between one parent and one child.
Here's the story of the day we were transformed by Rendez-Vous's. Before then, they had been a good concept. After then, they became a vitally great moment!
One child repeatedly tantalized the others, and we parents spent our time resolving fights. Fed up, I took our son to his room, closed the door (privacy so he and I could keep “face”), and asked, “What is wrong?”
“Maybe I need a Rendez-Vous,” he whimpered.
I put my list of “Very Important To Do’s” aside and we played. The tension diffused. After our game-time we both emerged from his room with grins on our faces.
Kids AND Parents Need Rendez-Vous’s
The Rendez-Vous changes Mom and Dad too. They teach us to slow down and reassess priorities. The Very Important To Do’s will be around tomorrow (unfortunately).
The really important thing is to wake up to family intimacy tomorrow too.
Rendez-Vous's with Dad
There is something special about a special time with Dad. It feels more like a date or a unique event than it does with Mom. Give it a try too. My kids also love their Rendez-Vous' with Grandpa. "Can I have the first one?"
The Gift that Each Child Craves
Every kid wants Mom and Dad's undivided attention. It's the biggest gift they desire, yet it does not make the Christmas list. That's why we made these gift certificates for one-on-one time. Even our pre-teen and teen still appreciate them.
Time Flies So Have Fun
The kids are grown before we know it. Soooooo many people say it...because it's true and we are all caught by surprise. Take the time now. It won't come back.
