Between a career, housework and other life demands, finding time to spend with your children can be difficult. However, before you have time to react, your children will be grown and moving away from home. Here are three ways you can spend more time with your children.
Play Board Games
There’s no better way to connect with your children than by recapturing your youth. Set aside one or two evenings each week to play board games with your kids and reunite as a family. The best board games are those that bring all ages together for an exciting challenge.
Typically, moms take on the household cooking, shooing children away until the meal is complete. If you’re guilty of doing this, change things up by inviting your kids to cook the next meal with you. Many kid-friendly cooking recipes are available to help your children experience the joy of cooking, while also reconnecting with you.
Watch Movies in Bed
If you normally rush through weekend mornings catching up on housework, make next weekend different. Instead, eat breakfast in bed with your children and lounge around all morning watching movies. This can develop into a family tradition, and is a great way to shed the stress of the previous week while enjoying quality time with your youngsters.
Many opportunities exist to spend more time with your children. Whether you reconnect over the dinner table or by playing board games once a week, by reconnecting with your children, you’ll develop into a stronger family.
