Family Date Night

Friday is about Family Life

Try to have a Family Date Night once in a while. When my kids were younger Friday night was my favorite night of the week. First because it was the end of my work week. Second, it was the night we set aside as Family Date Night. This was when we choose to do things as a family. Activities included going to a new movie, staying in and renting a movie, playing a game, going out to dinner, out for ice cream, or some other activity we all enjoyed. On some nights we talked and laughed, while on others it was just a pleasant evening together. I looked forward to every Friday because the evening was a time when I knew I would be able to focus on my family, and not think about getting ready for work or school the next day.

As my children grew, so did their social calendars. After a while, Fridays became the time for hanging out with friends, going to the movies, participating in their activities or going to sporting events. After a while, Family Date Night became a thing “we used to do”, and it’s now a nice memory we share.

So before your kids get older and really involved with their friends and activities, try to have a regular Family Data Night. If your kids are already older, try to have a Family Date Night–even if you have to schedule it around their other activities.

Enjoy.
