Date nights are very important for a healthy marriage. They build relationships and give an opportunity to take a break from the daily routine, to stop for a moment, relax, and enjoy each other. Unfortunately, very often we are just too tired after all day at work or operating non-stop as a parent, and the last thing we want to do is to get ready for a date and leave the house. But who said dating is only when you leave the house without your kids? Let’s agree, the parents of young children rarely can actually afford it! After fighting to put the kids to bed, they themselves fall asleep on the couch. What if you could use this time to take care of your relationship? Here you don’t need big dinners in a fancy restaurant or go to the cinema. A little bit of goodwill is enough to have your date at home. It really sounds great! An evening date is a time for parents to help de-stress and feel like humans again so they shouldn’t talk about kids, work, or bills. There are many options for a home date night that you can easily organize. Cooking dinner together, sharing a bath, giving each other a back massage, etc. But sometimes all you need is to hang out on the couch, pick a movie you both agree to, and cuddle. The movie night at home is the perfect way to spend the evening together with your loved one while your kids are sleeping. Just make some popcorn or snacks, choose a good movie, add delicious drinks, and enjoy the evening together.
As children grow up, date night movie at home often switches to evening movie for the whole family. Watching a good film together can be a great way to spend your free time with your children. So how do you choose the best family-friendly movies and what to do to make the evening in front of the screen successful? Before making a choice, it is of course worth reading a review to know if the youngest can watch it. Not all comedies can be considered films for the whole family, it is better to save yourself unpleasant surprises. It is not worth forcing a child to watch these productions that we are fascinated with. Many parents try too early to introduce their children to the universe of “Star Wars” or “Star Trek”, treating them as family movies, while children are often still too young to understand such films. Don’t forget to prepare some snacks which are essential elements of the movie show. Comfortable seats, pillows, armchairs, blankets, and poufs will help to create a cozy atmosphere that everybody enjoys.
