Most people at some point miss doing things together as a family.

What do you mean you don't think your kids want to hang out with you, or you think they feel "too cool" for you . . . they don't.  Deep down, even if they are slow to admit it...they still like doing things as a family, at least occasionally.

According to a new survey, 7 out of 10 kids between six and 17, say they want more opportunities to hang out with their parents and and brothers and sisters to bond with them.

And a majority of parents wish they could spend more quality time with their kids.

The survey also found the activities that kids want to do with their parents the most.

The top 10 are:  Go to the beach . . . exercise . . . play sports . . . go to the pool . . . go to the movies . . . play at a park . . . go camping . . . go to a zoo, museum, or amusement park . . . play video games . . . and go shopping.

Find time to do it.  Because all too soon we experience "empty nest syndrome" and sometimes it not only leaves kids on their own but parents trying to relate to each other again.
