Fun and games can actually build brains and relationships.
Perhaps it is time for a game night!
When was the last time your family engaged in a good old-fashioned board game? Games like Monopoly, Clue, Risk, and Life are not only games that require and build problem-solving skills, they can actually give our kids some real-life lessons! You can discuss these lessons during or after the game. Board games also give mom, dad, and the kids a chance to engage one another all at the same time. They also do this in a way that most video games too often cannot.
You don’t have to wait for the power to go out to dust off those old Parker Brothers or Milton Bradley specials! But if that is what it takes then have candles ready and prepare for a time of bonding and connection that is foreign to too many families today. It will be a time your family will not soon forget.
