Like most committed and loving fathers, spending quality time the family is at the top of the agenda for Rafael Jovet-Ramos. Busy lives filled with social and work commitments are the norm these days, but quality time spent with family is the greatest gift any parent can give to their child.
Get The Housework Done Together
Cooking, cleaning and laundry are essential to running a household, so why not involve kids in these activities? Making a meal as a family can be incredibly bonding, especially when the activity culminates with a sit-down dinner. Working as a team to pick up clutter and straighten bedroom can be made into a fun game; when the chores are done the family does a fun activity together.
Create A Weekly Evening Without Electronics
Banning electronics for just one evening a week is a great way to bond. While this may initially create panic for all parties involved, those few hours of undistracted family time may just become the best part of the week.
Create A Family Game Night
With so many games to choose from, finding a game that the whole family can enjoy together is a no brainer. From card games to classic game boards, the bonds and memories created by playing games together are priceless.
Rafael Ramos grew up in Puerto Rico and currently lives in Spring Lake, North Carolina with his wife and two sons. When not spending quality time with his family, he enjoys scuba diving, geocaching, skydiving and spending time in the great outdoors.
