Finding the right balance of entertainment to work and home life is very important to me. My two children occupy a lot of my time so that limits the amount of free time my husband and I have. Sometimes we have a family board game night with our children so that we can all laugh and bond closer together, but sometimes we like to be alone with just us two, so what entertains the two of us may not be the same thing that entertains our children. We prefer electronic entertainment such as television and movies.
When my husband wants to entertain himself, he prefers getting absorbed into the fantasy world of video games. Myself, I am a painter and enjoy painting watercolors of ocean settings. When it comes to consuming entertainment, my children are on a whole different level than myself. Theyre short attention spans cause them to get bored frequently, so I like to get creative to remedy this. Sometimes I tell them to go outside and play a sport, so that they can get exercise along with playtime, and sometimes I have them do more mental projects like putting together a puzzle or coloring a picture, so that their minds get exercise as well.
