Why it's important to prioritise your relationship first

Ideas for family nights in


As parents, we often focus so much on our children that we forget about our relationship with our partner. While it’s important to give our children all the love and attention they need, we cannot ignore our relationship with our partner. In this blog post, we’ll discuss why it’s crucial to prioritise your relationship first, and why it's not being selfish.

1. A Happy Relationship Equals A Happy Family
When parents have a healthy and happy relationship, it affects the entire family dynamic positively. Children thrive in an environment where they feel loved, safe, and secure, which is only possible when there is a strong and loving relationship between their parents. On the other hand, when parents are always fighting, it creates a toxic home environment that can leave scars on children for life.

2. The Importance of Prioritising Your Relationship
Your relationship is the foundation of your family, and it’s important to keep it strong. Having an intimate and supportive connection with your partner can help you both navigate the ups and downs of parenting and life in general. It's not just about going out on date nights or taking holidays together; it's about taking the time to genuinely connect with each other and focusing on what brought you together in the first place.

3. The Role of Self-Care in Your Relationship
As parents, it’s easy to get lost in the routine of everyday life, and forget about self-care. However, taking care of yourself and your needs isn’t being selfish; in fact, it's the opposite. When you prioritise self-care, it strengthens your relationship with your partner and your connection with yourself. Ultimately, self-care helps you become a better parent, partner, and person.

4. Box'd Night In Can Help You Connect
We understand the importance of taking the time to connect with your partner, but we also know how hard it can be as parents to find the time and energy. That's why we created our kits. They  are carefully crafted to bring couples closer without ever having to leave their homes. Our boxes include everything you need from games and activities to meals and snacks.

It’s crucial to prioritise your relationship first, as it's the foundation of your family. Taking the time to connect with your partner, practicing self-care, and using resources such as one of our date night boxes can help you strengthen your relationship as a couple, which in turn will benefit your children and your family dynamic.
