While there have been lots of things to hate about the coronavirus lockdowns, and it’s certainly been a stressful time for parents, some moms and dads have actually found the quarantine has brought them closer to their kids. 

A new survey finds:

  • 78% of parents say it has helped them get to know their children better.
  • Another 78% say it has helped them bond more with their children.
  • This is likely due to the fact that parents are now getting six more hours of quality time with their children.
  • Some of the ways parents have bonded with their children include:
    • Played games with them (52%)
    • Showed them some of my favorite movies (45%)
    • Showed them some of my favorite TV shows (41%)
    • Let them help in the kitchen (39%)
    • Listening to them more (37%)
    • Play with them more (37%)
    • Showed them some of my favorite video games (36%)
    • Read a book together (35%)
