A lot of mothers get babies few years after the other and this makes the babies have same interests at the same time because they are of similar age. This affects the children in such a ways that they love to do similar things the same time, for example, they will play together with the same toys, they will watch the same films together and also listen to the bedtime stories together. If there is a big gap between your kids the age harmony does not exist and one child will have different interests from the other. It will be a bit challenging for you to make them all happy at the same time. Therefore, you need to do something so that you bring harmony back in the family.
The first thing you should know is that age is not everything that the age is specific. There are the forms of entertainment that a person of any age can enjoy because they are not for a specific age group. The films that are animated are good for both the children and the adults and they make everybody happy for some hours. Various toys, books, and games are perfect for the children with the big age difference. For your family to spend time together, choose the activity that will appeal to all.
Secondly, you should incorporate doing things apart. Do not allow your children to argue whether they have the CBBC or the CBeebies what you should do is allowing one to have time watching his or her programme while the other is spending time with you in preparing dinner or doing homework. Then do a swap to allow both watch the TV channel they prefer and each spend time in other things. It is not easy for a twelve-year-old kid to play comfortably with toys similar to those of a five-year kid. So you should show them how they can do their own thing in turns and at other times do the activities together that they both enjoy.
You should also consider being away from home. It is important to organize a reasonably harmonious living arrangement at home, what about when you are away? If you find yourself in a situation where the kids are arguing about where you go when you are all out you should apply the principles similar to those you use at home. Still having children that are of totally different age group is beneficial. The older kids will be protective towards the younger ones and also play with their siblings. Issues may come along when the children get to the age of teens since everything changes.
