Has your family hit a lull in terms of open communication? If you have teenagers and those teenagers are holed up in their rooms whenever they are home, try instituting a mandatory Wii family game night. You will love it because you will get to see your kids more, and your kids will love it because they will be playing games. What could be more enjoyable than exploring and then living out the family game night ideas you find?
If you need more reasons to kick start a Wii family game night, consider the statistics proving that families who play together stay together. This is less a scientific theory and more an observance of the nature of human beings. Families that physically set aside time for each other usually wind up with stronger relationships that last longer. So having a Wii family game night could actually positively impact the relationship you have with your spouse too.
Also consider the notion that something like a Wii family game night could open up your kids to talk to you more about their school lives and about any outside influences that are confusing them. They might be exposed to drugs or alcohol and may not want to talk with you about it during dinner, but they may casually bring it up when they feel closer to you. And a Wii family game night is the solution that could bring you closer together with your kids. So in a way, it could help save them from having too many negative or any detrimental experiences outside the home.
Adding Wii family game night also gets everyone more active. If your kids prefer to play on their tablets or laptops and cannot stand to get out in the fresh air, or if the late blooming spring is keeping you inside rather than outside because it is too cold to play outside, a Wii family game night can get everyone active without having to go outside. There are Wii family game night games that are designed specifically to get you moving, so everyone can have some activity thrown in there as well.
Try out Family Game Night 3 or Family Game Night 4, which are both game packages available via the Wii system. Rent them or buy them outright, whatever you choose and whatever works best for your family. But know that by playing with your kids, you are doing something great.
