This morning we were a team! I started my morning walk alone. After three days my youngest joined me. The following day my eldest took the lead. The following days after the two of them were always with me. And this morning my mom was with us. My husband did not have any plans of going with us because he was in charge of the breakfast which was favorable for me. (winks!)
This activity then turned as one of our mundane family ‘core’ bondings. According to South University.edu children feel special when their parents spend time with them doing fun activities. This quality time then has its benefits like:
- Creating a stronger emotional bond between parents and children.
- Allowing for better communication between family members.
- Superior performances in school, as children who spend time communicating with their parents tend to get better grades.
- Less likely to exhibit behavioral problems, since kids with parents who spend quality family time together typically have fewer problem behaviors.
I am so grateful then for having this special moments with my kids while doing this sunrise photo and health challenge. It is fun for all of us.
