Do you give time to your family?
The past generations were passing more time with their families than we do. Though we complain our busy life often, but there are a lot of options that make our life ten times easier than theirs, or should I say 10 times more complicated?
My family is 1400 miles away from me. We try to see each other as much as we can but it's hard. My husband is my only family I have here and we spend as much time together as we can
My family has all of my time, and I am thankful that I have been able to give that to them. In today's economy it is a constant struggle for many. That is why I think that with couples working full time, weekends need to be dedicated family time. Kids need that.
Even though I am not married and don't have any kids, I try my best to dedicate some time with my parents everyday. Their advice on life is too valuable to missed and their infinite love is immeasurable to ignore. Unfortunately, we do not spend as much time as the generations before us, but atleast we're trying. I like your question!
I am a stay at home mom so my family has my undivided attention. But with all the different activities and running around we do there isn't always quality time. I feel that quality time spent is the most important thing. I have made family vacations very important. We try to go away 4 times a year and spend time as a family together without all the outside influences. We have built strong bonds and memories. It has not only made us closer but brought the children closer as well. We have also designated Sundays as family day. Even if it is just having a normal family dinner together and watching tv.
I think that in the financial pressures of today, more and more parents have to work full time, and don't get to spend as much time as they would like with their family.
I am quite lucky, as earlier this year I cut my work hours from full time to around 20 hours per week. This means that I get to spend a lot more time at home with my family. We set aside one night a week for a family night and do something together, whether it is going out for the evening or staying at home watching a movie or playing games. Neither my partner or I work at weekends now, so we have lots of time to do things that we all enjoy. With the summer round the corner, we have lots of things that we want to do as a family - bicycle rides, picnics, days out, holidays etc. Family is very important to us and we want to make the most of it while my daughter is fairly young as children grow up so fast.
