Apr. 6: Making the Most of the Night

Family life is filled with an excessive amount of activities and often not a lot of down time.

Author Jenn Berman (The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy, Confident Kids) suggests several ways to make the most of those precious few hours of evening family time.

First, call a “black out”—an hour or two of tech-free time. No texting, tweeting or video games.

Next, eat together, and maybe even prepare dinner as a family.

Finally, right before bed time, talk with one another.  Have each family member discuss their favorite and least favorite parts of the day.

Each moment we share with those we love is precious and to be treasured.

How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!  (Psalm 133:1)

In all times, we seek Your love and wisdom, Master.
