It is never too early or too late to make or even strengthen the bond between a parent and a child. The best ways to create a bond is through laughter and play. It doesn’t matter if you are playing with toys or just you two; the main instrument you can use is having fun. Due to that, I want to share with you a few games you can play with your children to encourage attachment.

Hide and seek

Hide and seek is a great game because it keeps kids occupied and it is extremely fun. Hide and seek is a game which develops the creativity and object permanence and the best part is that you don’t need anything but you and your kid. It is a great game you can play inside during the boring rainy days and you both will have a lot of fun. The game has a special meaning for children how have been neglected in the past. It reminds them that someone is looking after them and that this person cares so much about them that he or she is ready to look everywhere to find them.

Swimming

There is something peaceful in slowly swimming in warm water. If your child is not a good swimmer, gently hug him and let him feel safe. Teaching a child how to swim requires trust between two people, which is something many hurt children struggle with. Remember to start slow, build gradually, and always let the child set the pace.

Reading books

After a day filled with activities, the evening is the right time for some storytelling. Grab a children’s favorite book, tuck your kid in bed and start reading. Your kid will listen to your gentle voice and slowly enter in the world of dreams. Now, that is a perfect end to a day.

Table games

Game tables are a great addition to any game rooms and they are a lot of fun. If you want to strengthen the bond with a little older child you can get a tabletop version of the air hockey or even foosball table and play a match or two. Game tables are great team games because you can’t play them alone and they offer a chance to start bonding with someone. You will spend time together and it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose, you will have fun. It is a game which can teach how teams work, which can help a child later in life.

Foosball has always been a special game for me. I grew up on it and the thing I like the most about foosball is the fact that you have to play it with someone. My favorite part of the day when I was a kid was going to the arcades with my father to play foosball because we didn’t have it at home. Later, when I grew up, I and my friends played it all day long. We were the perfect team, we knew each other styles and we could see which move the other will do before he did it. It was a bond which made us an unstoppable dream team through college and we played in local tournaments few times. This bond we had is still strong but not as before, now we all have families and we want to share our foosball experience with our family.

Games like foosball can define your life without you even noticing it, and that is what makes them so special.
