When spending some good quality time with your tweens, the activity matters less than you think. Its the time spent with them and the attitude you as the parent has. If you are tense and thinking about work just going through the motions, the quality just won’t be there. If you’re being a perfectionist if its a project you’re doing, they won’t have fun either. Embrace the child within you and laugh at your mistakes and you’re sure to create a fun filled day no matter how you spend it.
