No matter their age, strengthening your relationship and encouraging good communication with your children can boil down to one thing; spending time with them! It’s important to spend time each day with your kids; but amidst the busy days and packed schedules it’s often hard to carve out a good amount of relaxed time together.
Enter the idea of a monthly date night/day with your kids! A date involves time spent one-on-one trying to learn more about a person, talking, asking questions, communicating, building relationships.
Why not date your kids? One of the best things we can do as parents is spend some special time with each of our children.
It doesn’t matter what you do, and it doesn’t have to be expensive; what matters is that you are able to focus your time, attention and energy on your child and enjoy being together.
Take a look at this list of suggested date night/day activities from Macaroni Kids.
