Family Bonding With A Game

Has anyone tried bonding with a family over a game? Yes you heard it right, a game. Most families have probably never given it a thought that the best way to bond with a family member is to play a game with them. You don’t necessarily have to play a real world game, you can also play an online game in multiplayer mode and it will be fun. More than a decade ago, I used to play online MMORPG game with my girlfriend and we had a lot of fun even though she never enjoyed games, she played with me or say for me.

We know of a family that survives on an online based game called 8 ball pool. This family of four loves to play a game of pool online almost every day at night before going to bed. The father goes to work and comes around before dinner. Wife also goes to work and comes by evening as her office is near to her home. Two kids are going to school and come by afternoon and have their own set of keys to come inside the house. Now after dinner they have a tradition to play a game together till they fall asleep. The reason they play 8 ball pool is because this game is fun to play and it can be played on multiplayer mode. When four people play, they play 2 games of 2 vs 2. The winners and losers of the first round play against one another. That way all four people play against each other and they also have a winner and a loser. Sometimes they also go out for a scoop of ice cream after their game and the winner gets to choose the flavour, and that way they bond together happily.

We recently had a chance to speak with the the father and mother and they told us a lot about how this game has done a lot for their family. They explained us the whole concept we just told you but what else they told us is about the game. The game in itself was not as much fun but they made it more fun by using some scripts. Well we could not understand it fully as we are non game geeks but they actually meant they are using some kind of tricks to hack 8 ball pool game and that has helped them get like unlimited amount of coins in game and they used it to purchase various things inside of the game. Apparently that made their game more fun and interesting. It was a harmless trick that they employed and had not paid any money for it. If you are interested in this game and wish to speak with them then please comment below and they will read and reply to it if they wish.

For the rest of the folks, we wish to say, family bonding is not difficult at all, you just have to give some time to your family. Find out what interests each family member, find a middle ground and then do it. There has to be something that all the members of the family will be interested in. For example I know of a family that loves to go on a vacation and one family loves to go and eat outside.

Family Bonding is Important

Family Bonding is one of the most important concepts of today’s world. Long ago, we did not even discuss this topic because there was always one parent at home taking care of the kids, making them breakfast. Parents also used to drop their kids to school and come to pick them up on time and while kids came home, lunch used to be ready for serving. Times have changed and today we put up the kids to go to school in a public transport with other kids.

Lunch is prepared along with the breakfast in the morning which kids will heat and eat on their own because both parents are working. Mother may come home by evening and father may come home late at night after the kids are already asleep. Many homes see situations where parents are hardly spending time with their kids. The kids also realize that parents are working and they stop bothering their parents because they think their parents might already have enough on their plate. This makes the kids become more open to their friends rather than their family members.

Bonding with your family is an important part so that your kids don’t feel deprived of the parental love and care. You don’t want your kids to grow up thinking that you parents were never there for them. When everything is going great, there is no problem but once when there is a problem they will feel that they needed you and you were never there and if they grow up thinking that then they will always be distant and you don’t want that.

It is very important to talk to your kids on a regular basis, have one meal a day together on the dining table talking to them. Try to connect with the family members and have some quality fun time with them. There are two holidays in a week, Saturday and Sunday. Let Saturday be the day when everyone does whatever they want to do, meet friends, go some place out for a movie or dinner. Keep Sunday as a family day where everyone in the family spends their time together doing some fun activity or even just talking.

If you keep one day a week for the family then everyone in the family will realize the important of being connected and that is the main goal here. Sharing and Caring is very important in a family for it to survive and thrive.

Things To Do With Your Family

Movie – You can watch a movie together in your Television or you can even book tickets to the nearest cinema hall and enjoy there.

Sports – Another way for family bonding is to play some sports activity together. You can play Cricket or Badminton or any other game that you like. Your kids can also call their neighborhood friends to make it more fun.

Board Games – It is really the simplest way to spend a fun time with your family. Playing Cards or any board game, like Monopoly can be an interesting thing to do with your kids. Play a game that everyone enjoys to make the most out of it.

Video Games – Most kids love video games and so you cannot go wrong with this. Put the DVD of your kid’s favorite game and start your X-Box or PS and enjoy. Your kids will love you if you play video games with them.

Read a Book – Sometimes you can just read an interesting book to your family members. It works great if your kids are small, all you have to do is to read in an interesting and a fun way to keep that excitement. Check this photo below and see how happy this family looks like:
