Making the Most of Drive Time

6 Jun

Families today are busier than ever before. Between work, school, church, and any extracurricular activities finding time to connect can be a challenge. One thing that we can do as parents is make the most of our drive time. We drive to school, to the store, to games and recitals, and many other places during the day. There are many ways to make the most of this time. After all we have a captive audience (my boys have yet to jump out of the car LOL) with minimal distractions that are faced in other places.


Here are a few things you can start doing during your drive time:
  • Worship together – put in a CD and get your praise on
  • Talk about the day – chat previous day’s events and what’s happening today
  • Do devotions – talk about the Bible and how it applies to everday life
We, as parents, need to make the most of every moment. There are so many voices that our children are hearing every day and we want ours to be the loudest and most consistant. Doing these things during drive time is just one more opportunity we have to connect with our kids.

    Wendy – This is such a good reminder! My little boy seems to want to talk the most (and often about things serious to him) when we are in the car. And sometimes I just want a few idle moments…but really I'm missing my greatest chance to shepherd him. Great post! ~ Amy

    I have always played Christian radio in the car. My kids are too young to really carry on much of conversation, but I figure I can at least fill their ears with the good stuff, right?? 🙂

    Great Post, my kids are babies still but I when I drive I listen to Christian stations, because they have such great sermons and I want that to sink into their little heads haha
