The Benefits Of Family Time
Today's family is very busy. Most families have both parents working. But making time for spending quality time as a family is a very important investment of your family's time.
Here are some reasons to make time for family time.
Spending time together enjoying fun activities is associated with kids and parents having a stronger emotional bond. These activities don't have to cost money. The simplest activities they your family enjoys and does together counts as quality family time.
Spending time as a family is associated with better communication amongst family members and children.
Kids who spend time communicating with their parents tend to do better at school.
Teenagers who are actively spending family time with parents tend to have less behavioral problems.
Young children learn their habits from you, their parents. You are the most influential person in your child's life. Family time gives children the opportunity to learn and model your behaviors.
