One of the greatest ways you can provide a child with a sense of belonging and establish a team environment in your home is to do fun things together. Whether it’s establishing a new tradition or trying something new together that you may never want to do again, it’s always a good idea to connect as a family. Family connection time allows you to not only be together, but create fun memories together. Talking, laughing, exploring, teamworking (yes, I just made that up), fighting (wait, what? Let’s just be real here–anytime you get family together, there is going to be some of that). But even the fighting within our families provides an opportunity for us to grow as a family and learn how to handle conflict and differences in opinions in respectful ways.
Because family connection is so important, over the next few weeks, I will be sharing a fun fall outing or activity for you and your family to do together. This weekend, how about a Neighborhood Fall Scavenger Hunt. We have done these in our own neighborhood, but we may shake things up tonight and go to another neighborhood to try this one out.
This fall, take time to connect as a family as least once a week! Your relationships will grow; your laughter will increase and maybe…just maybe, the fighting will be minimized. 🙂
Here’s to building better families together–
