School, work, music lessons, sports, friends. They're all important, but they're all things that make us busy. When we're too busy, one of the first things we neglect is FAMILY TIME. Family time is important and here are a few reasons why:
Build a Stronger Bond
What better way to build a stronger bond with your family than spending time with them doing things you love? From playing in the park, to craft time to family dinners, it's important to get to know the ones you love the most. If you realize your family is beginning to drift apart because your schedules are too busy, recognize it. And fix it, right away.
Teach Your Children Valuable Lessons
Game night can teach valuable lessons like sharing and taking turns. Family dinners can teach things like the importance of chores and kindness. The more time your kids spend with the most influential people in their lives (the parents), the easier it is to instil good values and manners in them from an early age.
To Know What's Going On
What did your kid do at school? At the babysitter's? Taking time to ask questions and have a conversation with your little ones can open your eyes to a whole world of things. Just chatting with your kids can give you an idea of what their friends are like and how they act when you're not around without seeming too pushy.
Because Family is Fun!
Your family is the most cherished and important thing in your entire life. You want to get to know them the best you can. You want to love them and for them to love you back. You want to be able to relax and have a good time! Spend as much time with your family as you can because these moments will be some of the most cherished memories for the rest of your life. And theirs.
