Family Life is Important for Kid’s Mental Health and Adjustment
All parents have the goal of raising happy, healthy, well-adjusted children. Most parents look for information online and from books and other resources related to child development, child psychology, and parenting to help them to be successful in achieving their goals.
Yet parents may overlook the importance of day to day interaction with kids and teens as well as the influence of day to day family life as playing an essential role in supporting mental health and well-being for all family members.
Citing Parenting Matters, an exhaustive report published in 2016 by National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)states, “Having a safe and loving home and spending time with family―playing, singing, reading, and talking―are very important. Proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep also can make a big difference.”
Additionally, one of the principal findings by the authors of “Family Leisure Functioning: A Cross-National Study” published in (Leisure Sciences 2016), was the following: “Consistent and continued involvement in family leisure remains important to family cohesion, adaptability, functioning, and satisfaction with family life; however, more emphasis should be placed on creating satisfying family leisure experiences rather than simply high levels of family leisure involvement.”
