Do they crave a little one-on-one fun time with you?
Time to schedule a daddy date or mommy date with your child!
We asked top parenting bloggers about their best ideas for spending individual time with your children.
In this article, I’ll share five ideas for planning special “dates” with your kids and a few tips to help you make room in your schedule.
Why Take Your Kid on a Date?
Your kids crave alone-time with you. It makes them feel special to have you all to themselves.
You know how important it is—and you love it too—but it can be hard to find the time!
What with work, school, homework and activities, how does a busy parent do it? And if you can find the time, how do you shake things up a little?
Would you like to live an incredibly adventurous life with your kids?
Are you willing to burst out of your rut to live it?
It’s not that complicated. Living a life of incredible adventure is something that anyone can do.
The problem is most of us overthink it. We spend too much time talking, planning and worrying about outcomes.
The key is to “just do it!” Just go after those things that inspire or even challenge you, and experience them with the people you love—like your kids.
In this article, I’ll share six tips I gleaned from Bob Goff’s book, Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World, which inspires ordinary people like you and me not to just dream about doing things, but to step out in faith and start living life to the fullest.
What’s Love Got to Do With It?
The theme of this book is love. Not the kind of love that stops at fuzzy thoughts and feelings. But the kind that takes action and makes an impact. This kind of love is not safe. It’s risky and beautiful and makes you do stuff.
The reason why Goff can speak of love and living incredibly at the same time is his own faith. His understanding of how God loves people empowers him to live a life of full engagement, adventure and excitement.
