Respectful Ways Fun Family Activities

Respectful Ways is pleased to offer this checklist of fun activities that children of all ages can do with the whole family.

These activities foster creativity, discussions, imagination and growth. Your family will get to know each other better — and learn a few interesting skills along the way!

 

The CDC is still discouraging large gatherings to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Children especially are feeling additional anxiety, missing the freedom to visit friends or travel. Unknowingly, they may act out feelings of anger, resentment and depression at home.

Parents can get ahead of these natural feelings before they rear themselves in the forms of defiance, aggression and self-isolation.

Respectful Ways is an innovative online youth program that teaches character building and social-emotional learning. RW offers a series of listen, play and learn activities to help families recognize and navigate through potential negative feelings, understand their origins, and help everyone cope with this unusual situation.
