    Happy Families: Family Chemistry

    September 7, 2015

    Building strong family relationships is about perfecting your chemistry with your parents, siblings, spouse, and children. It’s not as simple as it sounds, though—it takes creativity and experimentation.

    Featured in our Happy Families Extra radio series, the Oh family prefers to work on their chemistry while literally working on chemistry. They create a dry ice solution that will freeze household objects like candy, bottles, and even flowers.

    “We do it because it’s fun and cool. … It’s fun to experiment together and see what happens,” says mom Bryn Oh. “I would say parenting is kind of like working with dry ice. There’s a little bit of fear and apprehension. It’s a little bit messy. Sometimes you want to take it outside.”

    What “experiments” have you and your family tried in an effort to grow closer together? What works? What doesn’t? Share your ideas in the comments to inspire others.
