If you have a teenage son or a younger boy, you can do many activities with him to keep him busy. A parent’s participation in their son’s day-to-day activities starts dwindling as he grows. It is therefore important for parents to create opportunities to be together with their son.
Here are five things you can do with your son:
1. Plan his birthday:
First and foremost, you can plan a birthday party for your son. Involve him in the preparations and you can bond over things like the decorations, cake, theme, guest lis
t, and so on. When you work with him together, you will notice that he is more forthcoming in expressing his emotions. Organizing a birthday for your son can be a good bonding experience.
2. School Involvement: It is also important that you remain aware of what is going on in your son’s school. Teens often don't disclose information that they feel their parents should not know.
Knowing about school activities is a great way to bond with your son. He will see your concern for his studies and reciprocate your attention.
3. Celebrate: If your son received good grades or made a crucial home run during a little league game, then show him you're proud of him by throwing him a party. You can organize the party on your own, or involve friends or even an event planner based on the size. Invite his friends and favorite people. You can even plan a surprise party. Your son would cherish the time spent with him and the effort that you put into it which is sure to strengthen your bond.
4. Spend time with your son: This is great for both of you. You can do a lot of things together like play with your son, discuss topics of shared interest, watch movies together, or work on his school projects together. It is very important to spend time with your son at any age.
5. Activities: Fun things to do with your son can range from crazy horseplay to going on father-son or mother-son shopping trips or archeology digs. A go-carting track, visit to a fire station or farmhouse, snowball fights, and so on can count as special outings with your son. Remember, most boys are energetic and doing fun things with your son can bring you both closes. You can go rock climbing, swimming, play board games together, watch interesting movies, go for a long walk, or even plan a visit to a wildlife sanctuary.
These activities can help strengthen the bond between you and your son.
