1 | THEY REMEMBER THE 1 ON 1 TIME
The 1 on 1 time with parents and kids is irreplaceable. And it’s what they remember most! More so than the family vacations, time with their friends, big birthday parties, etc. It’s the time you take out of your day and make sure that they feel valued, and all of your attention is on them and that relationship.
2 | Build it around them
Bring your kid into it, ask them what they want to do, and then set a day in the future. When you bring them into it, they feel like they have some ownership over the day and that’s the best part! Also, pull them out of school for this as something memorable. Mike does an awesome job setting out how to build that anticipation, doing it instead of something else (do it during school), and surprising them with something.
3 | A Day of Yes
We say no to our kids so often that you need to make sure that you turn your day of fun, into a day of yes. We say no so often that this can be a great day to surprise them with a bunch of yes’s! They want a toy at the gift shop? Yes. They want soda with lunch? Yes.
What an awesome episode we have for all of you dads out there today. And if you’re not a dad (yet?) stick around because you’re going to love today’s guest, and our segment at the end. We have Mike Ruman back on Uncharted today to talk about what a day of fun with your kids does for your soul. Listen in as Mike talks about how to plan your day with your kids, what to think about, and how it can be refreshing for your soul as well.
Stick around for our Man of the Moment Segment as we invite Neil Eukel back on the show to see who he and Colin have been inspired by lately. This is a great one for all you dads out there!
