It’s always a good idea to bring your family closer together for an even greater cause. One of the easiest ways to develop a greater bond between yourself and your loved ones is by shoring up your home’s safety with a few fun activities. Here’re a few you can try:
1. The bond between father and son is a special coalescence, and it’s often brought about by unique moments of assistance and cooperation. if you’re looking to spend time with your son, try working on an project together. Why not repair some of your outdoor furniture together or teach him how to patch up that siding you’ve been meaning to get around to? That way, you’ll foster the condition of both your home and your relationship.
2. The exact same goes for mom and daughter. Whether you’re a homemaker or not, we can all agree it’s healthier to live in a tidy home than it is to live in a dirty home. Make a game out of cleaning that your daughter can play with you, or teach her how to make one of your favorite dishes and clean up together afterwards. Less mess, less stress!
3. The computer is our generation’s source for endless entertainment. That said, it needs to be used with caution and care. Teach your children about cyber safety and safe web browsing – there are plenty of games on the Internet that can help you along the way.

Remember: family fun time doesn’t have to serve just one purpose alone. Bring your family closer together, and bolster your household security at the same time!

You probably spend a lot of time thinking about your home – visiting sites like www.homesecuritysystem.com and talking about paint colors and which flowers work well in the yard – but do you connect with your kids there? Here are a few tips for making home improvements while bonding with your family
Start a Garden: If you’ve got room or even a deck, start a small vegetable garden. Your kids will love to tend it and the project goes on and on – think herb pots and hanging tomato plants if limited space is an issue.
Make a Family Room: Reinvent a space in the house as a “family room” with some elements of everyone’s personality. Ask each child to make a painting to represent themselves or specify one thing they want in the room (i.e. board games, a dartboard, a place to write, etc.)
Clean Together: Now’s a great time to clean out for winter and the kids can help. Pick a day and ask everyone to go to town on their own room then go together to donate old supplies to groups like Goodwill.
Spending time with your kids outdoors is a wonderful opportunity for play and exploration.
One of my favorite activities is to plan a picnic. Eating outdoors is so much fun and children of all ages love it! Children also enjoy the fun of packing their lunches; sandwiches, raisins, cookies, and fruit all work great. For added fun, bring along some bubbles or a ball to play with.
Kite flying is another great outdoor activity. It is best to find an area with plenty of space; perhaps you live near a beach Read the rest of this entry »
A family vacation can be an amazing chance to bond with your children. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we can sometimes forget to reserve attention for the people most important to us. A vacation allows you to experience time with your family outside of the home setting. Seeing the smiles on your children’s faces as they explore new places and try new things makes the money spent planning a vacation worth every penny. Read on to discover the best vacations for every type of family.
Vacations for the Adventurous
Are your children of the rough and tumble variety? A theme park vacation could be perfect for you. The thrills and chills associated with roller coasters are sure to put wind in your hair and a smile on your face. The many family-friendly theme parks in this country mean that you never have to travel far to get there, and most have rides for even the smallest thrill seekers. A theme park adventure is perfect for families who desire a high energy vacation.
Vacations for the Exhausted
Tired of the rat race? A beach vacation is just the ticket for rest and relaxation. Beach combing, splashing in the surf, exploring tide pools and watching Pacific sunsets or Atlantic sunrises restore your tired mind and provide plenty of opportunity for family bonding. When your life is hectic, your vacation should not be. A beach vacation provides a much-needed break from everyday life.
Vacations for Nature Lovers
Is roughing it your style? A camping trip is a great way to escape the bright lights of the city. National forests offer camping opportunities galore. Pitch a tent, light a fire and watch the stars come out as you roast marshmallows and sing a song. The memories made on a family camping trip (or any family vacation) will last a lifetime.
Spending quality time with your family should be the number one priority in your life. Unfortunately many parents put family time activities on the backburner in place of television, friends, work or daily stresses. If you are looking to spend more time with your children, there are many activities that appeal to both parent and child.
