Linden's Family Homes Can Help Busy People Enjoy More Together Time
19 Apr 2016

With modern families spending less than 40 minutes a day together, according to a new report, why not enjoy some together time at one of Linden North’s family-friendly homes?

A study into the habits of the 21st century family puts household chores, long working hours for parents and children preferring to go to a friend’s house among the reasons for families enjoying just 38 minutes quality time together during an average weekday.

However, with huge benefits associated with buying and moving into a brand new home, Linden Homes North says families are spoilt for choice when it comes to location, design and affordability at developments around the region.

“Everyone understands the pressures on modern families who work hard to meet their own work/life balance,” said sales director Steve Woomble.

“The joy of being a family and advantages of moving to one of our stunning new homes are numerous. With a great space for children to call their own, perhaps through a new bedroom or family room and garden, means that they will want to spend more time in their own home instead of visiting friends!

“A new home will also mean less maintenance jobs and hopefully cut down on household chores. Also, the fact that our developments are built in carefully thought out commutable locations will help to reduce travel to and from work time.

“In fact, with a study a feature of many of our family homes, working from home could also be an option – giving parents more time to spend with their children after school hours. There may also be an opportunity to make use of this or another room for work purposes.”

Other reasons highlighted in the report polled by Hollywood Bowl for families’ lack of quality time together include:

  • Children’s homework and extra curricula activities
  • The family’s reliance on gadgets – including mobile phones and tablets
  • Children rather watching TV or playing computer games.

However, the majority of parents polled (83 per cent) said they want to make an effort to spend quality time together as a family.
