Ever wondered what it would be like to have an evening with no TV, no computer, no video games? A bit scary isn’t it? Family Game Night can be a special time for everyone, young and old!
The truth is that “Family Time” has all but disappeared. It seems almost impossible to find (or dedicate) time to spend together these days. But studies show that the simple action of interaction on a weekly basis is definitely worth the effort.
Whether it is Thursday after piano, Tuesday after swimming or Sunday after, well, everything – gather the troops, let a family member pick a board game and watch the schedules disappear and the fun unfold. Family Game Night will not only make a significant difference emotionally, educationally, and psychologically, it will also give everyone a chance to connect.
Pass go, discover Mrs. Peacock in the library with the wrench or discover the Game of Life – it’s amazing what you will find out about your kids and what they will find out about you. You will also find yourself engrossed in family issues, sharing accomplishments – or just plain talking!
And not only will Family Game Night get you and your kids talking…it will also get you and your kids laughing, being silly, and just being yourselves. And honestly, it doesn’t get much better than that!
