How are you spending July?

How are you spending July?

We hope that you are still embracing summer.

We dream that you are spending at least a part of your days eating yummy fresh fruit and running around with your kids or playing a great card game or board game.

We imagine you rejoicing in the sunshine or marveling at the incredible summer storms.

How are you spending July?

We were recently inspired by a daily email we get from TUT.com , and wanted to share our version of their inspirational idea so we’ve edited it slightly:

Let’s pretend, just for today, all day long, throughout our every thought and decision, that life is easy, that our kids mean well and that time is on our side. Okay? And let’s pretend that things are working out, that nothing can ever hurt us without our consent. Alright?

And if we like this game, we’ll play again tomorrow, and the next day. Pretty soon, it won’t be a game at all. It will just be.

Model that for your kids. Talk to them. Connect through conversation. That’s parenting!

Did you see the 2016 Participaction Report Card on Canadian Kids’ Health?

This is another great reason to get running around with your kids and get them down to 2 hours of recreational screen time/day max.
