To be an effective parent and have a close family, you need to spend quality family time together. This sounds simple enough, but it can get quite difficult when you’re working full-time and your kids have sports, their friends, and part-time jobs of their own to work around. Even though it can be tough to schedule, it’s important for your family to find time to spend together regularly. You might have to get creative with your attempts to spend time together as a family, and it could be challenging, but you’ll find that your family will be closer because of it.
