Juggling multiple children with big age gaps

For many mommies, kids tend to come very close in age together but as we all know, that doesn't always work out. Whether you wanted your kids more than a couple years apart or it was happenstance a big age difference of more than 2-3 years can put a big strain on mommies and daddies. Though it presents many benefits, having kids farther apart can also present some pretty unique challenges. For those who don't, these tips will give you a bit of an edge to maintain a bit more order with your children and your home.
Plan a variety of activities for all ages. No activity is going to be perfect for everyone but being able to cope with all sorts of activities is essential. Your teen or older child may have no interest in going to Frozen on Ice but there are many other options that can appeal to kids of all ages. Things like a trip to the science museum can be great for both the young and old alike and if you live near the coast or by water a trip to the beach can be fun for everyone.
Plan one on one time. Just due to age and needs, younger children tend to get the majority of parent's attention. While teaching your older kids to be flexible and patient is a good thing make sure that all of your children get time with you. Despite being more patient and likely much more in tune with their siblings' needs they are still children as well and need the same love and support. Even just a night out for an ice cream a couple of times a month can make a big difference.

Foster the younger child's development. As kids grow into teens their interests change. Though they may enjoy, and you may allow, more graphic video games and music a lot of parents aren't too keen on their little's listening and watching those kinds of things so young. Maintaining a high expectation for your older children and your younger children as well as setting reasonable rules will help keep everyone level and prevent little ones from developing concepts before they can handle them.

Having two children with a vast age gap isn't easy but there are ways to make life easier despite the shortcomings.
