SLOW FAMILIES

In this age of "FAST", families are taking a back seat to technology. Families are spending less and less time together and more time surfing the web or playing video games. Remember the days before PSP, Nintendo DS, Nintendo WII, PS3,or Xbox360 video games? You could set up a Monopoly board and be entertained for hours. Treat your children to a night of board games by digging out an old favorite. Many of the old classic games - Snakes and Ladders, Sorry, Life, Clue, Battleship and Bingo - are still on the market.

Why not spend a day at the beach. Go bowling, go on a picnic, horseback riding or set up a table out of the way so the family can work at a jigsaw puzzle!! Work on your family genealogy roots together!

Bring back the old fashioned fun that is the key element to a much slower paced time.
