HAVE A BETTER Evening

Article excerpt

Nurture the Bond

Most of us have precious few hours with our kids at night. To make the most of them:

1 Black out.

Establish one hour (or more) of tech-free time. When computers, smartphones and TVs are off, family members are practically forced to interact.

2 Dine together.

Even if it's just for ten minutes, or if the only time you can all get to the table is for dessert, use mealtimes as gathering opportunities.

3 Recap.

Right before bed, have each family member discuss favorite and least favorite parts of the day to share the most significant events.
