FAMILY BONDING TIME
Set a fun and educational date with your kids
Quality time or quantity time? When it comes to allotting bonding occasions with family, the debate is still on. The bottom line, though, is the same and remains simple: You can’t discount the importance of spending time with your kin. Research suggests that bonding improves your children’s social skills, enhances communication between family members, and reinforces mutual respect. These, in turn, allow members to value one another and avoid hurting each other.
Take advantage of the season of hearts and turn the usual lovers’ celebration into a memorable family bonding experience. There’s nothing like seeing children get all excited doing what they want to do, while you discover the kid in you, too.
