Family game nights can provide a welcome break for kids

Some parents focus on taking their children out of the house to do things that will create memories, but the best memories are sometimes made at home. If your child is going through a rough period of adjustment, such as what happens during a divorce, the stimulation of large crowds might make them feel more stressed.

It is often a good idea to have a night of fun without leaving the house. A family game night can help them to relax and also has other valuable benefits.

Choose a board game that doesn't include a screen. Not only will this help your children to engage more with those around them, but it also gives their eyes and brain a chance to relax from the strain that comes with screen time.

While the children are playing board games, they are fine-tuning skills that can help them through life. Rolling dice, for example, helps fine motor skills. They can also learn what it means to play fair and have good sportsmanship. Some games teach them how to work as a team and plan for the long term.

This bonding time might become a favorite activity for the kids. They may crave this personal attention. For many families, game night is a tradition that often expands. You might add in hot chocolate and popcorn or maybe ice cream sundaes. The small details are often the ones that will excite the children and give them something to look forward to when they are with you.

You can plan these nights around your child custody schedule so that your children can count on a fun night at home to decompress and relax.
