Parents no longer have to worry about their family fun activities simply because they’ve discovered that even doing the chores can be time for sharing and some really great fun. In fact, you will find that most children are not as hard to please as us, their adult counterparts.
All most children want is to know that their parents have time, a real interest, and a genuine willingness to share in their world. Families experiencing time and financial constraints can have fun.
The thinking is usually since extravagant type family fun activities can no longer or has not been affordable; all things have to come to a halt until the financial resources improve or there is time.
But that is simply untrue and sometime the family problems have to be set aside for some family fun. We’ve had to remind ourselves and you should too.
You need no recent study, reminder, news bulletin are anything else to remind you of how important it is to spend time with your children. Not only is time going fast, so are their growth.
That old feeling of Guilt! This is especially so with mom’s, feeling extra guilty! Then others feel guilty if they can’t take care of everyone and every thing. Some feel guilty if they can’t further their careers and then others feel guilty when they are not able to provide the other part of the nurturing care system – money.
But money is not the only thing families’ need in life. Needed, but not all that’s needed. No drama, you do have enough money and time for family fun.
All you both need to do is just remind yourselves that family fun activities do not require extravagance, time hogs, or being away from what you’ve considered to be your responsibilities. Though that would be a nice gesture to occasionally do the opposite for yourself and your family.
You see it really does not matter who, what, when, where, or how you’ve chosen your family fun activities, it just needs to be a decision to change your perspective of what is viewed as fun when it comes to kids. Kids just wanna have fun especially with their family.
Does your child see the newest toy on TV and say they’ve got to have it and then you later find that same overly expensive toy setting in the toy chest collecting dust or they’ve slipped it into the trash bin?
Once again, it is we as parents that want our children to never want for anything or to go through what we have gone through! Again, there are everyday activities that you can share with your kids in order to share some family fun time together.
Family fun not only gives you time together, it also helps families to become closer, allow family members to learn from each other and at times create family traditions.
