A new family activity is gaining traction in the heart of the Bay Area: sleeping in.
It’s called the Family Activity Chiro, and it has the same name as one of the new TV shows in the series, Family.
The new show premieres Thursday at 9 p.m.
ET/PT on ABC Family and the CW.
“You know, in the first episode, the mother has a little kid and she’s having a hard time with it and she wants to be able to be in the dark with her baby,” said Alex Miller, a staff writer for ABC Family.
“But she’s so stressed out by all the work and she can’t be in her own house at night and she just needs to go home and take care of that little thing.”
The show has the tagline, “You can be the parent of any child,” and a new episode, titled, “Nightmare Child,” is set to debut on ABC next Thursday night.
Miller and his wife, Kristin, are hoping to inspire the rest of the family to take up the Chiro challenge.
“It’s just really easy to do and I think it’s really awesome,” said Kristin Miller, the series’ creator.
“It’s a way for us to be more involved with our kids and have a little bit more privacy.”
The idea for the Family Chiro came about after the couple decided to take a break from parenting to spend more time together.
Kristin Miller and her husband decided to go out and spend time with their three young children.
The idea came from the idea that the family could spend more of their time together and spend less time with the kids.
They decided to make the family activity chiro.
“We started talking about it and I just kind of took it on board and thought, ‘Well, I’ll just make it a real thing,'” said Kristina Miller, Kristina’s husband.
They started with a few ideas, like a couple of books about sleep deprivation and making bed, but eventually decided on an entire family activity that would be more than just reading a book.
“There was one little book that had a little chart on the cover and it had a bunch of pictures and I thought, this is perfect,” said Miller.
“That’s when we realized, oh yeah, we can actually do it.”
The family activity Chiro is set up in a family room with a TV in front of them and is designed to mimic a family activity like cooking.
Kristin and Alex Miller wanted to see how this would work and to get feedback from their family.
“I would love to see them try this and see if it’s a little different from what they’ve been doing,” said James Glynn, a TV producer and producer on the show.
“We have the parents and the little kids, and I’m hoping they’ll be able really to see what’s going on and what’s not working.
It may be a little more quiet and more quiet with the family, but it’s not going to be loud.
That would be a really nice change of pace.””
We are really excited to have it come to life,” said Karen Miller, one of three producers on the series.
“This is a really cool idea, and we are really hoping that people will like it and be able take part.”
It’s easy to understand why, as many families, it can be hard to find the time to take part in family activities.
The fact that it’s designed to be done in a quiet, secluded setting has also been a major draw for some parents, but some may find it a little too quiet.
“As parents we need to be doing more to keep our kids quiet, but we also need to have the right kind of stimulation to keep them entertained,” said Elizabeth Jones, an instructor at the Center for Family Studies at the University of Southern California.
“When we’re doing things that are distracting, they just want to shut off and stay away from it.”
One of the major challenges is getting the kids to feel safe and quiet in their homes.
Jones said that the Chirro has a lot of different ideas that parents can try.
“Parents have a lot more ways to make sure that their kids are safe, quiet, and peaceful,” she said.
“There are also things that they can do to make things a little quieter.”
“What if there’s a zombie in the house and you need to take them to the store?
You can do that, too,” said Jones.
“You have a different way of going about it.”
