(Family Activities) Mom & Dad’s Room


We spend a lot of time in our homes, mainly in the living areas, kitchen, bonus rooms, etc. These rooms are created to be common areas. Bedrooms are a more personal space. Conversations and interactions are naturally more intimate there.

Spend an hour or two one evening with the whole family in the master bedroom. Encourage the kids to bring a few books or small toys with them. Turn off the TV, put away the phones and spend a little bit of time just focusing on being together. You can read your own book, spend a little bit of time writing, chat with the kids or your spouse, brush the girls’ hair, play some card games, read to the kids or help them with homework. Whatever the activity, I think you will find that the mood of the family is just a little bit different when you change the setting.

Cozy up with your family tonight and simply enjoy being together.
