With technology consuming more and more of your children's time, most would think that kids would choose more gadgets as their greatest desire. The real answer is really quite endearing. According to a study by IKEA 55% of kids and teens in the UK are happiest when spending time with their family.

Further, 29% interviewed said they enjoyed family dinners and 20% admitted being happiest when mom or dad reads them a story.

So, lets turn off the TV and put down the controller or tablet and lets spend some quality family time folks! Some ideas for the family include:

-Let the kids help make dinner.

-Let the kids have a say in the decoration of their room and work on it together.

-Happy children learn from their mistakes so don't over praise and let children own their victories and mistakes.

Having a family is a lot of work but most importantly it just takes time.
