Family Routines

Family Routines are important and make lasting memories. Family life might be more chaotic without some routine, but there’s more to it than that. Routines also let your children know what’s important to your family. Highly meaningful routines are sometimes called rituals. These can help strengthen your shared beliefs and values, and build a sense of belonging and cohesion in families.

We’ve learned that our children love to read so we now read in the bed before bed. CJ has learned that even though he can't read the words yet, he can read the pictures and he loves to tell his own story. We use this time to spend time together to wind down before bed by reading a book of our choice.

Post one of your family routines, we would love to hear what you do.

  1. My son and I also have a few routines we do every evening before bed...... We set down and eat dinner together at least 5 out of 7 days with no tv/music on. We always hold hands and pray, and hold conversation about our days. We also read and pray together before bedtime. I feel it is very important too that routines are established.
