Non-Violent Flash Games and Family Bonding

Spending quality time with our children gets harder and harder as parents work hard to provide for their families. Technology is also here to stay. As a teacher, I am amazed at how teaching has been transformed with teh use of technology in the last few years. We want to make sure that our children are ‘safe’ while online.

I have come across a colleague who is committed to providing Role Of Non-Violent Flash Games In Family Bonding for children. Since children love to play flash games, it best to be informed. Having fun with your child playing these flash games provides and opportunity for some quality time together.

Here is a one of the sites that you can enjoy together: Tom and Jerry Games Have fun!

Spending Time With Children

Spending time with our children or grandchildren is the greatest thing we can gift them with. As parents we are usually so getting our kids ready for work, making lunches, getting to work, going to activities, along with other household task and family responsibilities.
All these obligations and responsibilities leave us very little time to spend with our children. In the evening there si dinner to be made, homework to be done, activities to go to,cleaning. So many parents don’t even have time or the ability to help their children with their homework. For me this was less of a problem because I was a stay at home mother, yet even I had days where there was little extra time.
Spending time does not have to be a long time. It’s the quality and HOW you connect with your child or children. You may have to schedule it in. I have had students come and tell me that they missed their parents because they were working and so we negotiated at least one special time a week for them to spend time together doing somethign special.
Grandparents, can be such a help if they are available. They usually have more time to devote to spending time with your child, children. If it is possible, allow them to step in and help.
The bottom line is, do what you can to spend more time with your children. Do things together, bake, cook, clean, talk…the sky really is the limit.

Educating Children’s Hearts

We are so consumed today in our fast paced world to make sure our children are learning. There is still a strong focus on academics…  In order for there to be success we look to see if our children are progressing in what they are learning at school.
Maintaining this focus without balancing out teaching “heart stuff” continues to promote an imbalance. We need to honour and recognize that compassion, consideration, love, being friendly, thoughtful all come from our heart space. There has been so much research done on the power of the heart.
