Touch on DVD Today 10/16/12. Check out Five Ways to Connect With Your Child

Martin Bohm is a widower and single father who is haunted by an inability to connect to his emotionally challenged 11-year-old son Jake. But when Martin discovers that Jake can predict events before they happen, everything changes. Touch is available on DVD on October 16th. 
Five Ways to Connect With Your Child
In Touch, Martin has a hard time connecting with his son, Jake. In this feature, we will provide parents with helpful tips on how they can better connect with their children, including having weekly family meals and making yourself more available to talk, attend events, etc.
Prepare Family Dinner
Set aside one evening a week when your family can prepare and eat dinner together. Allow each person to choose the recipe of the week and set a rotating schedule so everyone has a chance to make a favorite dish. Not only will you be spending time with one another, but your children will learn basic cooking skills while you learn more about their favorite foods.
Attend Sporting Event or Extracurricular Activity
No matter what activities your children take part in, stay up-to-date on how practices or rehearsals are going. Ask when special events or performances occur so you can plan your schedule ahead of time in order to attend. Remaining informed and involved in your children’s interests is key in expressing how proud you are to be their parents.  
Family Game Night
A fun way to connect with your kids is to plan a family game night a few times a month. There are many options out there from classic board games like Monopoly to word games like Catch Phrase. A nice way to end a game night is to have the winner choose their favorite place to grab dessert at a local ice cream or frozen yogurt shop.
Photo Sharing Project
A creative way of connecting with your children is by doing a photo project together. You can create a physical scrapbook using supplies from a local art store. Or for the tech-savvy parents, you can create a blog or photo e-book with your children. This is a great way of sharing stories andremembering fun times.
Take an Evening Walk
One way to re-connect at the end of a busy day is to take an evening walk with the entire family. Communication is key in keeping any relationship healthy so this is a relaxing and easy way to talk with your kids. Also, it is nice to be active with the family so switch it up with a bike ride or rollerblading.   

Our Take:

I am a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland, and of course I was glued to the TV for every episode of 24 so when I heard that he was going to be on a new series I could not wait. Touch was going to be good. This series is from "Heroes" creator Tim Kring, Touch, starring Kiefer Sutherland and Danny Glover. Great actors and a great creator. This is going to make a great show. And boy was I right. I just adored this series. Much like the show 24 I was glued to the TV and I was really sucked into each episode. I simply could not step away I had to find out what was going to happen next.

I can only imagine what it would be like to have a child with a “gift” like that? I don’t know… But Touch is a unique inspiring show, that I very much enjoyed.

I love how the series blends science and spirituality. And Danny Glover is wonderful as the professor, isn’t he great in any role he attempts? Such a great actor.  If you are looking for a dvd that will keep your interest and keep you on the edge of your seat. I would highly recommend Touch. It is available on DVD now. This would also make a great stocking stuffer for a Kiefer Sutherland fan, or for someone who loves great  science fiction/drama shows.

Good advice. It is so important to bond with your child and to interact with them and their interests. Just being there for your child's ball game or school play really means a lot. Plus, it gives you an ice breaker for starting conversations and helps to build your relationship. I'm glad that this movie is a good family movie. That can be hard to find.
