In this digital age, kids spend more and more time on their smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It is our responsibility as parents, to get them out of that internet black hole and find a way to connect with them.
Limit the screen time
One of the first things you want to do is to limit their screen time. You can use the kitchen timer to set the time they are allowed on their phones or tablets, And you can also set new rules like no tablets or phones in the kitchen during meals, or during family time.
Cook and eat together
One of the best ways to reconnect with your kids is to let them help you in the kitchen. Kids love when they can help you prepare meals, and also cooking and eating meals together can be a great bonding moment.
Plan fun activities for your family
Planing fun family activities like bowling, hiking, baking, the game night could be a great way to bond with your kids and get them off their phones. This family time is a great way to create memories with your kids.
Encourage face-to-face conversations
The best way to bond with your kids is to encourage face-to-face conversations. Not only is the best way to get to know your child more. Enforcing this rule will help the open up more, and it will be helpful when they hit their teen years. But make sure to available when they want to talk.
Find a hobby that you can all do together
Finding a hobby that you can do with your kids is also a great way to connect with them. It can be exercising, collecting items, learning a new language, hiking, volunteering, painting, etc.
