Family Togetherness

A lot of things have changed since we were all children. The price of everything has gone up like 200%, kids are playing more inside by themselves rather than outside with their friends, and family members can get so busy sometimes that they are barely able to communicate with each other.

With winter holidays just around the corner, family communication and togetherness is more essential than ever.

Because we here at Reach Magazine TV care about family, we’ve come up with a couple easy things that you can do at home to strengthen your family bonds and maybe even have a little fun along the way.

Church is obviously something that can help strengthen the love your family feels for one another.  After church, maybe set up a family tradition where you all go out and eat together, or you all go home and play an outdoors game like football or softball that the whole family can enjoy.

Another thing, dinner time should be family time, not stare at the TV screen time so turn it off when you sit down with your family to enjoy your evening meal.  Without the distraction, it will make it easy to have a nice conversation.

If you or your family members are having trouble coming up with things to talk about, play dinner games where you have to say something nice about someone at the table, or talk about personal goals for your week or month, and even tell your family what you are thankful for.

You will be surprised at some of the things your family has to say about you or other family members and that education will definitely bring you all closer.

Helping your community or the needy is a great way to bond. Sending cards to our soldiers overseas or donating cans to a homeless shelter are just a couple ideas you can do as a family.

What tradition does your family follow? None? Well, what are you waiting for? Start one!
