Spending time together is so important for family bonding. However, it isn’t always possible to find concrete time daily for that important connection. That’s why it’s important to purposely schedule family bonding activities.
From after schooling activities, to work, and other engagements it can seem impossible to find a time that everyone can be together in the same room at the same time.
This is why it is crucial to set aside time at least once a month to facilitate a family bonding day. Having a once a month family bonding day will give you all the opportunity to clear your schedules at least once a month in order to solidify your connection as a family.
