  1. Running away? LOL just playing, taking the time to sit down and walk away from the computer and the other distractions of life ;).

    …throwing your kids in a sound proof room and….

    okay just kidding.

    The secret to quality family time is having fun together doing even the simple things like just chilling out.

  4. Making sure you commit to some every day,week and month.

    Daily it can be a few minutes of one on one time, or make sure everyone eats at the same time around the same table, or play a cd and dance crazy together for a few minutes before starting homework or going off to baths. Or story time or talk time before bed.

    Weekly cooking a family meal together one night or having delivery and a movie or games.

    Monthly plan an outing to a fun activity, do volunteer work together, or let each person take a turn to plan something fun.

    When my kids were young, I had one day a month for each where just they and I went off and did something together.

    Make some memories and take loads of pictures.
