A family, however you define it, is essential at both a personal and societal level. Families feed our souls by providing security, love and support. They’re our first introduction into navigating and nurturing relationships. Let’s face it, though; maintaining close family relations is not easy. It takes time, a lot of patience and loads of humor to create a healthy family life and to build a strong unbreakable bond between you and your children. With our busy lifestyles, it can be extra difficult to carve out the time necessary to create these bonds, but there are many ways we can use our home to facilitate this.
Home technology, for one, can be the perfect tool for families to create memories and bonding opportunities. Pundits may criticize technology as damaging to family relations but there is a flip side. Instead of being responsible for the divide within a family, technology can actually be the glue that holds it together, especially with the advancement in smart TVs and home theatre systems.
When approached thoughtfully, TV viewing can be turned into an advantage because it can generate quality time together. It may take some time, and you may have to go through a healthy debate trying to select a movie everyone will like, but there’s nothing more enjoyable than cuddling up on the sofa with snacks, a blanket and everyone you love.
TVs encourages families to laugh—or cry—together, but it can also be a tool for sparking discussion and disseminating information. In the age of streaming movies and subscription services like Netflix, parents can leverage smart TVs to educate their kids by introducing them to both local and international issues, and exposing them to documentaries and nature shows that portray various cultures and people. Watching TV with your children can open them up to a world far beyond their imagination and the communities they live in.
Watching television can also be an important tool for relaxation. In today’s busy world, parents are encouraged to slow down and unwind, and children need opportunities to take a breather as well. Cozying up together in the living room watching a laugh-out-loud comedy may just do the trick.
