1.Family Time Strengthens Bonding
A close family tie is one of the characteristics of a Filipino Family. We made sure to find time to be together to strengthen our relationships with one another. The Family Time can come in various types and forms. The easiest of course which most people would really love and look forward is an outing.

During our family outing as much as possible we invite everyone in our family along with their kids so that cousins will develop a closer relationship with each other and grow up as friends. A family outing need not be expensive, in our latest outing, we rented a coach which everyone can fit in and easy for us to our bring food. Of course, each family brings food and we all shared what we have in one table.
2.Family Time Helps Kids Develop Parenting Skills
Family time develops amongst kids their own parenting skills. Children learn by example. As we gather together as one big family, children will see how their parents interact with each other and this is a good example to show to them how to become one someday.
4. Family Time Results In Less Behavioral Problems
Kids who communicate well with their parents and other members of the family has a big tendency to have less behavioral problems. Family time promotes good communication among members of the family and this is well displayed while having a family time together.
5.Family Time Promotes the Value of Sharing
When we go out as a family, we really encourage everyone to share. So for those who have more can share a big portion, while those who have less need not share that much. They can just share according to what they can afford.
6.Family Time helps Kids grow in a non Judgmental Setting
As children enjoy in a safe and supportive environment, they will begin to develop self-confidence at their young age. When we go to a resort, for example, we made sure to allow kids to enjoy by just watching them from a reasonable distance and allows them to do whatever they want. We only offer help whenever they ask for it.
