Parenting Tip #6 Have Movie Nights with your Kids

Some of my favorite memories of growing up & helping raise my step-kids are movies nights. Growing up with a single mother, we had limited resources.  That being said, every Friday evening we would go to Burger King for a kids meal, go pick out 2 movies to rent for Friday & Saturday night & then go to 7-Eleven to pick out a candy bar & soda for each night.  I can't say that my sister & I didn't argue over what movie we would pick but this ritual was fun overall.  

When I started to get to know my step-kids, my now husband & I did a lot of movie nights on the weekends we had the kids.  We would set up the big screen, watch movies back to back & get all the pillows & blankets out so we could camp out & cuddle.  We would share our favorite movies whether they were classic, silly or just fun.  We often had a double feature of A Bugs Life & Magnificent Seven.  Watch them together, they are the same story.  We'd also watch American Graffiti (my husband's all time favorite), Blues Brothers, Step Into Liquid (surfing movies are always good) & of course I introduced them to Austin Powers & Love Actually.  Of course my step-daughter & I never miss an opportunity to watch Disney & Harry Potter movies.  We didn't just have movie nights with the 5 of us but with our neighbors, friends & family.  Either way it was & is a great way to bond & have fun!
