Creating Memories

For 30 years Focus on the Family has been nurturing and defending families worldwide. Visit FocusOnTheFamily.com for articles and resources to help you and your family thrive.
Creating memorable times that your
children will cherish

Want to create special memories with your children?
Here are some ideas:

1. Give the gift of time. Schedule one-on-one time with each of your
children and consider these "dates" as important as any other
commitment on your calendar.

2. Make generous use of pen and paper. Record your thoughts,
hopes and dreams for your child in letters and journals.

3. Put caring notes in your childs' lunch box or on his or her pillow.

4. Plan significant family vacations. If your family loves history, your
itinerary could follow the Santa Fe Trail. If you're sports fans, take
a road trip and explore some historic stadiums. If you're short on
money or time, set up a tent and camp out in the backyard.

5. Make holidays unique. Start new traditions or observe old ones.

6. When your son or daughter is ready to leave the nest for college
or another destination, write a special letter pronouncing your
blessings and conveying your "release."

This list is not exhaustive; it's simply meant to stimulate your own
creative juices. Whatever you do, don't let the years pass without
creating memorable times that your children will cherish.
