Top 5 Reasons Why Family
Fun Time Is Important
3
  • In todays fast-paced world,
  • where both parents often work and after-school
    hours are packed with sports, music lessons and
    other extra-curricular activities

4
  • its easy to let family fun time fall by the
    wayside in favor of frenetic schedules.

5
  • However, family activities and traditions are
    perhaps more important now than ever.

6
  • Dont let this vital and fun part of your
    family life slip away

7
  • make a point of scheduling time together into
    yours and your kids jam-packed schedules.

8
  • Here are 5 of the many reasons why.

9
  • FAMILY BONDS
  • 1

10
  • Time spent together just having fun is associated
    with kids and parents forming stronger emotional
    bonds, and it doesnt have to be a major trip or
    expensive outing.

11
  • Just a simple picnic at the park, a trip to watch
    the stars at a local observatory

12
  • a family bike ride around the neighborhood can
    be just as beneficial (if not as thrilling!) as a
    trip to Disney World.

13
  • When you take time out of your hectic schedule to
    relax, hang out and laugh with your kids, it
    shows them that theyre important to you and you
    enjoy being with them.

14
  • Kids who spend leisure hours with their parents
    are more likely to turn to them for advice or
    seek them out when theyre having problems.

15
  • FROM BETTER MANNERS TO BETTER GRADES
  • 2

16
  • Youngsters who spend quality hours as a family
    have been found to perform better academically,
    be more compassionate and even learn better
    manners.

17
  • Whether youre taking the kids out for an ice
    cream cone, going on a family sledding expedition
    or just watching a movie

18
  • Whether youre taking the kids out for an ice
    cream cone, going on a family sledding expedition
    or just watching a movie

19
  • there are so many chances to teach manners,
    talk about values and even to show by example how
    to deal with things when they dont go as planned.

20
  • After all, as one mom put it, I tell my kids
    that the bumps in the road arent bumps, they are
    the road.

21
  • Kids can learn to navigate them with kindness and
    humor.

22
  • BETTER COMMUNICATION WITH MOM AND DAD
  • 3

23
  • When youngsters engage in fun activities with
    their family, more open communication tends
  • to develop

24
  • and when kids feel free to talk more openly
    with their parents, they tend to get in less
    trouble.

25
  • Something as simple as playing a friendly game of
    catch or splashing around in the pool

26
  • can lay the groundwork for a more connected
    relationship between you and your kids.

27
  • In a time when people of all ages tend to become
    a bit isolated by more technological modes of
    communicating like the Internet and texting

28
  • just getting out and playing as a family can
    set the ground for super inter-family
    communication.

29
  • ENHANCED SELF-ESTEEM
  • 4

30
  • Whether its a family tradition of
  • Driving around to ooh and ah over Christmas
    lights.
  • An annual shell collecting expedition to the
    beach.
  • A Jack-o-Lantern carving ritual.

31
  • Times spend having fun as a family hone a childs
    all-important sense of belonging, of being loved.

32
  • When parents like hanging out with them, kids get
    the notion that theyre people of value, that
    their talents, personalities and opinions are
    important.

33
  • Youngsters who grow up feeling secure of their
    place in the world gain a strong foundation of
    confidence

34
  • and self-esteem that will serve them well on
    the sometimes rocky road to growing up.

35
  • BETTER TIMES IN THE TERRIBLE TEENS
  • 5

36
  • Teens who have grown up spending active family
    time with parents often have fewer behavioral
    problems in these tough years.

37
  • In spite of the fact that they may act like they
    dont care about hanging out with you and may
    pass up family time for a get-together
  • with friends

38
  • parents should keep scheduling special time and
    not take it too much to heart if it doesnt
    always work out.

39
  • After all, kids often need their parents the most
    just when theyre acting like they couldnt care
    less.

40
  • Last but not least, family fun time is just plain
    fun, for you and your kids.

41
  • There's not a lot more heart warming than hearing
    your child say "remember how we always....?"

42
  • You're a parent who makes their children a
    priority - keep up the good work by providing the
    best after-school care possible.

43
  • Maplewood Country Day Camp in Easton MA is the
    perfect fun and safe place for your kids after
    school.
