What are some good ways to spend quality time with your family?

Answer

While every family is different and the needs of children change as they grow older, one fun way to spend time with younger children is on pajama walks. Parents magazine recommends getting the kids dressed and ready for bed before starting the walk. A short stroll around the block helps them to relax and bond as a family. Other options include a family game night or family vacation.

A family game night, in which parents play age-appropriate games with the children, provides quality time. This activity is more effective if it occurs once a week, but if schedules are too tight, parents find it necessary to plan a monthly activity. Turning the television and other electronics off during game time improves communication skills for all involved.

In a tight economy, many parents cringe at hearing the word vacation. However, it is possible to make affordable plans for family bonding, suggests About.com Fatherhood. Vacations do not have to include a trip to a far away theme park to be effective. A weekend away, at a hotel with a pool or on a family camping trip, are two options. Without all the rides and shows, the family becomes responsible for planning its own fun. Making plans for a trip to meet each family member's needs is often a bonding experience in itself.
