Snuggle Time: I Love You Ritual

I love you rituals are fun rhymes, songs, and touch play activities to stay connected to your child.  These rituals are done through songs and games because play is our childrens world.  They learn, discover, and develop through playing.  They feel safe and are attentive while doing it.  So, by having fun, you can keep your child’s attention while showering them with love and adoration.

Goals of these rituals

  • Optimize your child’s brain for success at school and in life.
  • Increase your child’s learning potential and effectiveness through touch.
  • Create loving rituals that hold families together even through the rough times.
  • Strengthen the bond between adults and children that insulates children from drugs, violence, and peer pressure.. laying a foundation for mental and emotional health.

These rituals are perfect in our hectic life.  They don’t take a lot of time, but give you special moments with your children.

Snuggle Time

Preparation and Instructions– Each day, designate a “snuggle time.” This is a five-minute time-out from the hustle of life.

The Game– To make a gentle transition from a busy time to a snuggle time, say the rhyme. This rhyme is the signal for both you and the child to locate each other and settle in together. Snuggle time is the time to hold each other, rock in a chair, or read a book.

Snuggle Time

Sometimes I yell.
Sometimes I hurry.
Sometimes I fuss.
And sometimes I worry.

All is not lost.
Everything is fine.
I love you so much.
Now it’s snuggle time!
