Why Spending Enjoyable Time Together is so important.

Strong families spend immense amounts of time together which leads to opportunities to communicate, nurture relationships, minimizes isolation, loneliness and alienation and provides a family identity. Time is one of the greatest gifts we can give to each other.

Time Together Guidelines*:

  1. Abundant but not Stifling- allows for individualism
  2. Planned but not Mechanical- no goal but to be together
  3. Serendipity- finding good things that were not sought
  4. Quality & Quantity Time Together Includes: Eat Meals; Do House & Yard Chores; Play; Enjoy Religious, Club, School Activities; Special Events; Do Nothing in Particular

* Adapted from Fantastic Families by Dr. Nick & Nancy Stinnett and Joe & Alice Beam
