Family Day

Family Day, created by the Center on Addiction, focuses on getting parents to do things with their children so that connections that create sustaining strong relationships are made, in order to help prevent teen drug use. Small things like eating meals together, playing games together, and asking children about their day can do much to build strong relationships. Connections should be made at a young age, as it is difficult to begin making connections with children who are already in their teenage years.

How to Observe Family Day

As a parent or parents, set aside each day for simple and small connections with your children, to create a strong relationship with them and help their development. Some ideas on how to connect would be to eat a meal with them, play a game with them, do another activity as a family, and to talk to them about their day. Further resources such as a parent toolkit are available on the Family Day website. While celebrating, you could take a family photo and share it on social media with the hashtag #MyFamilySelfie. Family Day is just one day of the year, but the act of making connections to build family relationships should be a process.
