5 Creative Ways to Spend Quality Time with Your Kids
Kids are a complete joy and delight. They make your life bright and better in ways that you just cannot imagine. As much as all of us would love to spend time with our kids, we cannot at times owing to work and other commitments in life. But it is important that you spend some quality time with kids. Sometimes it does not matter how long you are with them, but what you do with them in the time you get to spend with them. Doing things together and giving them the right kind of attention will help them adjust better in life and also make them more confident and face life easily. Here are some creative ways to spend quality time with kids.
1. Cut down on gym time and head out for a walk with your kids
Instead of hitting the gm every morning, you can take your kids out for a walk. It works well in a lot of ways. You and your kid get the exercise, you get to talk a lot of things or discuss stuff when you are walking and you can also bond by just being together. You kids will know that they have your undivided attention at this hour. You can also congratulate yourself on teaching them some good habits (exercise) early in life.
2. Watch a movie together
Instead of heading out to a theatre, grab a movie at home and watch it together with your kid. When you watch a movie at home together, there is always room for you to talk about the movie, discuss it and even pass comments loudly, something you cannot do at a theatre. Encourage your kid to talk about what he or she feels about the movie and be free to pass your comments too. Both of you will be surprised at how a movie can bring out things you never knew about each other.
3. Take them out on a school day
Surprise them once in a while by picking them off school and going out. You can take your kid out for lunch, a surprise treat or an afternoon movie. You can also go to the arcade and have loads of fun playing video games. The important thing is you should make your kids feel wanted and loved. And when you take time off work and also take them out of school, they will think of you as really cool.
