I used to find the term "family night" humorous. Why the title? Wasn't family night every night? Like many things I didn't get before I had my own kids, family night started to make sense once extra curricular activities and other things competing for time began filling the evenings.
Family night: An evening dedicated to spending time with the family because unless it's planned, it may not happen these days.
In our home we don't always have a set night but we do have something everyone agrees on always... movie time! So usually, thanks to Netflix and Redbox, we can have a movie without much thought or preparation. We don't plan it much either because I have a son who takes any chance he gets to do the planning for us!
It doesn't get much better than that and that's the point of family night, to instill the importance of family to our kids through time spent together.
Do you have a dedicated Family Night?
