Quality Time With KidsToday’s fast-paced and highly competitive world often leave many parents unable to spend quality time with their children. This is a sad scenario that should stop. If you find it difficult to find time for your child on a daily basis, you may want to consider spending time with them over the weekends. Here are some ideas:

Go to the Mall

This many not be as fancy as a trip to Hawaii or to the Caribbean, but it will still be something nice to do with your kids, especially if you would be buying something that they would need. Kids love the mall and it will be fun if you do an activity you both love. Set two or three hours of your weekend and be with your kid. After you’ve bought the necessities, eat ice cream together and talk afterwards. Your kid will appreciate it.

Go Sailing

If your kids love the water, then a day at the lake will be awesome. You would need to spend at least half a day for this activity. If you can't buy, you can always rent a boat. In fact, many boat rental companies today offer delivery in Lake Powell for your convenience. Once you have the boat, you and your kids will have a wonderful time together at the lake.

Play With Your Kid

Simple indoor or outdoor play can also be a good way to spend quality time with your kid. Grab one of those board games and spend even 30-minutes with your kids. Be creative. You can even play hide and seek. Parents.com suggest playing video games, so that your kid will have fun beating you at every turn. Your children will always have a great time for as long as you do the activity with them.

It is enough to make up for lost time during weekdays.
