Mom Says – Date Night

 Martha Putnam, Hanley Center Foundation, Coordinator of Adult Programs

Date night with David. This idea has been around for a while…date night with your child. My David loves to get dressed up—he even has several ties and bow ties. Our date nights tend to be very “grown up”.

After a school concert, the rest of the family went home and David and I went for ice cream. Simple, easy and effective to have some one on one time. On the other hand, my other son Will loves anything active—batting cages, mini golf etc. so our date nights are completely different.

One thing is always the same though, we talk about ladies and gentlemen and how they should treat each other. We talk about how to ask questions to learn more about the person you are with and how to listen when they talk. They don’t happen often, but when they do we all love date night!
