These days, there are very many distractions in the world; some of them even affecting our families. Parents and children no longer spend time together. Parents do not spare their time to interact with their children without any distractions. Family time is significant for a child’s development. Family time is free and does not require the purchase of a new game or toy. The list of the free and fun things a parent can do with their children during family time is endless.

Parents are advised to spare at least an hour every day and spend it with their children. At this time, the cell phones should be put away, the TVs, the music, the game systems and the noise should be turned off. The parent could behave like a child; get on the floor, play puzzles, cars, collect empty boxes and do anything the kid decides upon. Taking a walk outside and counting the number of different sounds you hear is also an excellent idea. Parents should avoid any distractions when doing all these activities. The time spent with your child is not like a toy; it cannot be replaced.
