Board games are fun and you can normally find some on Freecycle. Monopoly, Sorry!, Chutes and Ladders, Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit — whatever is appropriate for the youngest person in your family. Playing games and spending time around family members helps children as well. They learn the importance of rules and following them, sequence, how to be a good sport and a host of other things. At my house, Wednesday nights are Wii nights. My son just loves the Wii, so that night is set aside for us to play Wii with him, to spend time with him. That doesn’t mean we don’t play the Wii with him any other nights, but it is the night we drop everything and spend time with him.
