There’s nothing like sitting down together to play a game to connect with someone. While playing a game we learn, we compete, we cheer on victories and sympathize with losses.
Even if you can’t do it every, single day. At least once a week just stop what you’re doing and sit down to a board game or a quick round of Go Fish. This is a great time to pay attention to struggles your child is having. Maybe they are too competitive or mean, maybe they won’t try very hard at things….if you’re sitting and paying attention you will detect these issues and can help them work on them.
There are so many sweet moments of opportunity to connect when you’re playing a game. Reading the cards, sharing strategy, counting the moves, being in the moment. Look your child in the eye and tell him how smart that last move was.
