With back to school in full swing, many parents are feeling as if their lives are consumed with sports, homework, dance classes, piano lessons, fund raisers, etc, etc. Parents take on the full time role of Mom and Dad and neglect their role as husband and wife.
This is when date night becomes essential. Date night is a healthy way to reconnect after weeks of chaos and separate lives. It is an opportunity for a couple to dote on each other and fully devote their attention to one another. Date night should be something fun that the couple has in common or a new interest both are willing to explore.
