What do you to to encourage good family time?


We always do dinner together and talk about the kids days etc.  We have family game night and basically do everything together.

We do family dinners as well.  We also try to do almost all activities as a family unless it is a specific date for just DH and I.

We eat dinner together. We read together, we sing and dance together. The only structured thing we do together is dinner, but since our kids are younger (ages 7 and under) it is easy to spontaneously instigate family activities. We always, always, always spend Sundays together. Sometimes we go to a movie, or go on a picnic. Sometimes we go sledding or just go to the park, but it is always together. We also try to keep a routine date night with just DH and myself so when we have family time, we can both give the kids 100%. :-)

I really need to work on this and stick to it. As a single mother of two, one of which is a baby,  my life is really all over the place. But having set family time would really add some normality in to our life. Though every night we read books..and when the baby isnt screaming or napping I like to play the wii with my oldest.

pretty much everything we do, we do as a family. my kids are young and the only times I really have someone watch them is when I have a funeral or something similar to go to.. :/
