Fathers realize the importance of the quality time they need to spend with their families and children, mostly because they are absent from home at work for long hours. Here are a few ideas to consider, to enjoy your quality time with your children even more.

 

Show your affection spontaneously:

It is very important to show your children love and affection both verbally and physically. Playfully tease your children and show them your inner child while playing hide and seek, as this will make them feel secure and loved.

 

Read them stories:

Children enjoy fictional stories and fairytales, and they would enjoy them even more when told by their father. Make sure you read your children bedtime stories and give them a kiss goodnight.

 

Outdoor activities:

Take your children for a walk or a bike ride to encourage them to go outside and break away from the TV screen. Outdoor activities are the best and most enjoyable method to connect with your children, while making them know you care for them.

 

Participating in the kitchen:

Surprise your wife and children with a meal you have prepared yourself! Engage the whole family in the kitchen, as this will make all family members feel happy assisting the adults in the kitchen.

 

Sports activities:

Combine your cardio and workout of the day with that of your children. You can have a healthier life along with your children if you plan activities such as swimming, running, climbing or even football. These activities will ensure you spend wonderful quality time, with numerous health benefits for everyone.
