Four Ways To Build a Closer Family Bond - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

Four Ways To Build a Closer Family Bond

It isn't easy to maintain meaningful relationships with your family members when juggling work and other responsibilities. Including family time in this mix is nearly impossible when you already have a full schedule for the week. However, it's crucial to add family bonding time slots so you and your kids don't lose touch with one another. Here are four ways to help you build a closer family connection.

  1. Plan Family Outings

If you want to create memories while spending quality time with your family, plan a family activity. These outings can range from making a trip to the local museum to going on a nature hike. Taking your kids out is a great way for them to burn off energy, get exercise, use their cognitive skills and practice their social skills.

Planning an activity doesn't mean that you have to leave the house. If you can't go out due to the weather conditions or any other reason, arrange an at-home activity instead, such as completing an online escape room. In order to escape this room, your family will have to combine their thinking skills and work as a team. Attacking this task together is sure to bring the family closer.

  1. Eat Dinner Together

Unfortunately, family meals have become a thing of the past. It's much easier for a family to grab fast food and eat in the car on the way home than it is to make a home-cooked meal. Parents tend to choose convenience food due to having a lack of time. If you and your spouse work and your kids attend school and after-school activities, it's much easier to go through a drive-thru than spend time preparing a meal in the kitchen.

Although cooking may be the last thing you want to do after a stressful day, making dinner is essential because it helps to keep the family bond strong. Sitting together and enjoying a meal allows you and your family to discuss topics such as the day's events. Make this a safe space for everyone to share ideas and participate in discussions. To make the time as meaningful as possible, ask everyone to turn off their phones or other electronics so they aren't distracted by calls, texts or notifications. 

If you don't want to spend the night cooking, consider other options. Using a crockpot works well because all you have to do is place the recipe's ingredients into the pot in the morning, and the concoction will be ready for dinner. Alternatively, you can cook and freeze food in bulk. This method allows you to thaw and heat your meal quickly. It doesn't matter what you're eating; the most important part of dinner is that you and your family can gather around the table collectively.

  1. Make a Bucket List

Encourage each family member to contribute a realistic idea that they would like the family to do in the future. These suggestions can be big or small. Perhaps you want to go to Disney World, and your child wants to play laser tag at the new arcade. Both are important and should be placed on a to-do list.

The most crucial part of the bucket list is that you have to carry out these plans. By doing so, you are letting each family member know that their thoughts and ideas are important. 

The more significant meaning behind making a bucket list is that dreams can come true. This lesson teaches children to set goals and work towards achieving those objectives, which can help set them up for future successes.

  1. Attend Important Events

Make an appearance at events that are important to your children, such as basketball games or school musicals. Attending these events shows your children that you support and care about them. Showing up and cheering your kids on is also a confidence booster.

Creating a closer bond with your family takes time and effort. You have to be proactive, make plans to go places, and engage in activities to ensure your family's relationship stays strong. Putting time aside for your family is well worth the struggle because these moments can create memories that last a lifetime.
