Playing games with your family has more of a purpose than just having fun. It increases family closeness, creates memories, and helps kids develop social and problem-solving skills. Youngsters may think a family game night is all fun and games, but there’s a lot more to it. Research has found that families that spend time as a family unit have happier and healthier children.
As a mother of two boys, I try to incorporate some type of co-play on a daily basis. We have several favorite games that we enjoy playing like Wii Tennis and also the classic family games like monopoly and scrabble. For us, this is a time to connect and have a good time as a family. I used to be one of those parents who thought video games would have a negative impact on kids. It took me some time to realize that they could be a good thing, with limitations of course, and a great way for us to build memories.
Co-playing is a great way for families to bond and can be implemented in many ways. It may include board games, sports, video game playing or crafts.
It is great for both adults and younger children to work together on the quests and quizzes.
