How to slow life down with your kids and get back to the basics

Our modern life is fast.  We lead busy lives, and we seem to wear that sort of life like a badge of honor.  We are all permanently connected.  Whether it be to our social media pages or the dinging of our phones that alert us to incoming emails.  We can do our banking while we are at lunch, our social media while at dinner.  Due to the devices that all of us carry, there is an expectation of immediacy in everything that we do.  It seems that we are so busy, that we sometimes forget about how simple life can be.

Our kids can grow up so fast.  As a parent, it can be difficult to remember how simple life can be.  The trick is to slow things down and to help our kids enjoy a better life.  If we move at a slower pace we tend to appreciate more of what is around us.   Following are seven easy ways to slow life down with your kids and get back to the basics as a family.
