    Default 8 mins a day radio ad

    Anyone else in Brisbane heard that radio ad about 8 mins of quality time per day is all you need to spend with your kid. .. what's that about?

    LOL yes. I heard it when I was driving DD home from dancing the other night.

    We timed the drive home and it was 6 minutes, therefore she gets 12 minutes a day undivided attention from me on dancing days (there and back). Pat on the back for me.

    ETA just realised I didn't answer your question. It is a spiel by Michael Carr Gregg (psychologist) saying that kids only need 8 minutes a day undivided attention per day from their parent/s. Obviously a baby / toddler would need way way more. I think it is a good reminder for those with older kids / teens.

    Im not in Brisbane, but I do recall someone telling me that getting down on the floor and playing with my kid for just ten mins a day was adequate. So it's not a concept I haven't heard of..
