Five Family Resolutions

Posted by Jack & Lily on March 7th, 2020

Who says you can only make family resolutions at the start of the year? Even though March is already just around the corner, it's never too late for you to create new resolutions, especially if it helps the fam bond more.  We rounded up a handful of easy to follow and fun ways to keep your family connected to each other:

1. Start a weekly family ritual

Pick a day in a week when every family member can be present. For many families, Saturday nights or Sunday mornings work the best. Schedule a fun, weekly activity like a movie marathon, game night, or any other activitythat everyone will enjoy. 

2. Skip work and school (just once!)

Many families don't get quality time together during the weekends because those days are packed with events and household chores. So why not take a vacation day from work, dismiss your kid from school and have a family day on a weekday? Make that day memorable for both you and your kids, by letting the kids choose what they want to do.

3. Volunteer with your kids

Helping your local community ismeaningful and even more so when you do it with your loved ones. This can be a great opportunity for you and your kids to be exposed to causes and understand the value of working together and helping others.Helpfosterkindness, connectedness, and empathy while giving back.

4. Disconnect to connect

Make it a rule in your home to unplug from devices at least once a week. Everyone must participate, including parents. This can be combined with your weekly ritural, or a separate day of the week.

5. Eat together

Get your kids involved in the kitchen! From something as small as setting the table or even helping cook meals, having them involved teaches them kitchen and food skills and the importance of healthy eating.
