Father’s Day is a unique opportunity for dads and kids to step outside the norm, learn a bit more about each other, and have some fun in the process. Here is a list of activities for fathers to do with their sons and daughters on Father’s Day.
In today’s busy world, many parents have lost the art of telling their stories to their kids. Here are some reasons why these stories are so beneficial.
Sometimes when we think of spending time with our children, it is usually spent reading a book, watching a movie or playing sports. Why not think of gardening with the family? It provides involvement between family members and is both educational and fun!
One of the things I loved doing as a child was making very fancy and creative valentines for my parents. I would spend hours designing and building wonderful cards with little poems in them. The only problem was that, while my mother would receive her card graciously, she never received it with her heart. She would smile and tell me how lovely it was, but I never felt her love coming back to me. My mother did not know how to open her heart, how to smile at me with love and cherishing in her eyes. My father would never even notice his card.
It’s extremely easy to get caught up in the roles of mom and dad and to forget that we also have two other very important roles in life, which would be that of husband and wife.
Let’s face it …mothers are very busy people. Whether you work outside of the home or stay at home, there are things that need to be done, why not do them with your child?
A Family Album is an important keepsake for future generations to learn about their ancestors. It is also a wonderful gift to create and give to another family member.
Giving with a happy heart. If you teach a child to give with a happy heart you will raise a child who will never hesitate to lend a helping hand. Children enjoy helping others, especially if they see their parents doing the same. When a child’s basic physical and emotional needs are met, they are willing to share almost anything they have with someone in need.
