It’s crazy and goes against everything I thought I knew about kids.
But the shocking thing that kids really want from their parents is…to spend time with them.
But it’s true! According to a new survey, 73% of kids between the ages of 6-17 say they want to hang out with their parents more.
I know what you’re thinking, “my kid is 13 and acts like he hates me!”
He may act like it, but he still wants to hang and spend time with you.
The survey also shows that 70% of parents want to spend more time with their kids.
This great! We all want the same thing, but what are you supposed to do together?
The activities that kids want to do with their parents the most are:
- Go to the beach
- Exercise (who knew!)
- Play sports
- Go to the pool
- Go to the movies
- Play at the park
- Go camping
- Go to the museum, zoo, or amusement park
- Play video games
- Go shopping
You know what’s great about this list? A lot of them are absolutely FREE. So get out there and spend time with your kids. They may not act like it, but they want you around.
