As fathers, we all know that sometimes there is too much to do to be able to fit everything into one day. We work – and work long hours – and then when we come home there always seems to be something which needs to be done. Whether it’s putting the children to bed, doing the washing up, preparing dinner or even some last minute DIY jobs. When we became dads, though, we were prepared for this, and nothing is now too much to bother us. In fact, if there wasn’t anything to do after a busy day, the likelihood is that we would more than likely end up pretty bored.
However, sometimes we can become exhausted. Especially if it is the end of a busy week and there is a never ending pile of jobs which are going to take up our whole weekend. For example, if you get home late evening on a Friday and you know that your partner is going away for the weekend on a business trip or is going to visit family for a couple of days, then you will need to be prepared to have the children on your own for a few days. You have done it before, and you love your children, so you are looking forward to it and have all different activities and meals lined up for the weekend.
What, though, if there is an urgent DIY job which needs doing and which will take up the majority of, say, your Saturday afternoon? What are you going to do with the kids? They will not be able to help with the job as it involves a lot of heavy lifting and could be quite risky to them. Then, you come up with an idea. Download games which your kids will love onto your smartphone so they can be entertained while you are doing the DIY job, and allow them to relax and play video games while mom is away! They can also be in the same room as you, allowing you to keep an eye on them. If your feel your smartphone could do with a bit of TLC to enable your children to enjoy the games properly, you could take it to a professional or a company who will know what to do to get it back to top condition.
While giving your children your phone to play games on may not seem that great, it can be really beneficial to their education and mental stimulation. There are games available now which are very educational and enable children to develop knowledge of subjects which they may not have known about before. You would do well to research games which have an education edge or contain aspects of knowledge addition, rather than run of the mill games which will not benefit your children in any way. Math, literacy and foreign language game apps are very popular, and these sorts of games mean your children will be brushing up on their schoolwork while you finish that DIY job.
