8 Bonding Activities For Parents And Child:
1. Stop self-sacrifice:
We should refrain from sacrificing ourselves for the sake of our family. When done too much we start resenting them for it. If we do something for them, it should be because we want to. And not because we want to earn brownie points.
2. Know your family:
Showing genuine interest in every single member of your family is one wonderful bonding activity.
3. Retain your individuality:
Even though you are an intricate part of the family, you need to retain your individuality and uniqueness. This way you won’t lose yourself by being just what your family wants you to be.
4. Forgive and Forget:
Let love heal all wounds. We should forgive, forget and be forgiven. Any negative emotion will just harm the family.
5. Addressing issues:

Each person is unique. You must recognize that and celebrate these differences or similarities. Any small bit of celebration will bring across an immense load of happiness.
