Family Hobbies

Quality family time is beneficial for all family members, and fun. However, it is hard to make family time a habit, commit to it and persist.

Time is one obstacle, and interest is another one.

Spending time together just for the sake of it can be perceived as a chore by some family members, in some stages of their lives. When trying to establish family dinners, for example, the claim that it is important might not be persuasive enough.

Hobbies can help both with time and interest. A shared hobby can anchor quality time into the family’s routine, and replace the “important” argument with a “fun” argument, which is usually more compelling.

An engaging leisure activity can bring the family together, help them bond, resolve conflicts and tensions, create shared experiences, and strengthen relationships.
