First Things First Moon Pie Family Prize Pack – Ends 8/14 (US)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me for First Things First. All opinions are 100% my own.

Family is so important. I grew in up in a single parent household due to the death of my father at a very young age. Marriage and divorce has become a trend that occurs far too frequently. The values of family have slipped away. Parents have become too “busy” for their children, spouses too “busy” for each other, and excuses are plentiful.

No one ever said marriage and family was easy. Both require work and effort on everyone’s part. Learning to communicate is the key to success, but it’s not an easy feat if it’s not worked at.

Summer is all about family and spending quality time with the ones you love. And the more skills you develop the more time you invest in your family and your relationships. First Things First (FTF) is an award winning not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening families. FTF is a resource that collaborates with and is supported by a broad cross-section of community organizations, groups and individuals. FTF accomplishes it mission through meaningful media messaging and skill building classes.

Did you know:

• 24 million children are growing up in homes without their biological fathers.

• Only 30% of divorces are due to infidelity, addiction or abuse, 70% of divorces are due to couples feeling disconnected.

• Couples who manage to devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote as much couple time to one another.

• Fathers provide unique benefits to their daughters through their active and positive presence from the time of birth all the way through adulthood.

FTF has created and shared videos meant to teach valuable lessons. I watch five of them and really enjoyed Dad’s Way video the most. It reminded me that it’s not what my husband is doing with the children, it’s that he IS DOING IT WITH THEM. We are so worried about what is happening that we forget about the special bonding time they are actually having. I know my kids have a lot more “fun” with Papa because there aren’t soooooo many rules. Check out the fun video (it’s even got a catchy theme song)!

  • My favorite is the Daddy/ Daughter date video.

  • I loved the video, my Dad was always too busy to play with me and my siblings, this dad played with his kids but nothing dangerous.

  • I like the video of the Dad playing with his kids.

  • I liked the Date Your Spouse video

  • I thought it was cute dad having a tea party with his daughter and I loved how he got her hair up in a pony tail with the vacuum cleaner, good idea

  • I love the4 Lost in Translation one,I wish at times my hubby would talk more so I could translate, but for the last 46years it has worked so I guess I should be happy

  • I am going to be taking a look at those video’s in a little bit. I think “Lost In Translation” and “Date Your Spouse” seem like the two that I would benefit from. Sounds like an amazing resource and excited to see what it is all about. It is sad to know that statistics for marriages are the way they are- I swore that I would never become one of those statistics.

  • Awsome I wish I had a dad like that

  • dad video

  • Daddy/Daughter Relationships was my favorite.

  • I liked the dad’s way video.
