Having a household with children of varying ages that demand constant attention, it can be difficult to get adult time. So, periodically, we like to host a Parent’s Night Out. Parents can drop their children off for a few hours and have a date night, do some kids-free shopping (important this time of year), or just veg out in front of the televisions and make it through a TV show or movie without the steady rhythmic child interruption every ten or fifteen minutes.
This also gives our students opportunities to interact and get to know each other in a more casual setting. And, children get to bring siblings and/or friends and introduce them to their kung fu family. We played games, ate pizza, and watched a movie; and ended the night with some good old out-of-control, run-around like crazy, chaos! We love getting to interact with our students in these informal settings. We believe it really compounds the rapport we are constantly working on in the formal class setting.
