Create memories with your children

Spending special moments with your child creates memories that will last a lifetime.In our busy lives, it’s often difficult to find time to spend quality time with those that mean the most to us. But, research shows it’s not about the amount of time, but rather what we do within that time available, that matters most.

Here’s how you can create family traditions that the whole family will look forward to:

  1. Monthly Mommy or Daddy date. If you have more than one child, give each one a special monthly date where they get to do what they want with you. This will make them feel extra-special and you’ll be able to give them your undivided attention.
  2. Ice-cream Sundays. After church, take your kids to the shop to pick an ice cream of their choice.
  3. Movie night. Make Friday night a movie night. Everyone will be more relaxed (no school or work the next day!) and they can even stay up a little later than normal.
