In practice,ideal and perfect families do not exist. But,at least,all family members are trying to give their best to have and maintain positive approach towards life,everyday living and family bonding.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.It is by far my favorite motto. Consciousness in every day situations and how you are raising your children, is crucial for creating a happy,positive oriented family.
Lets,say,a family,that we can define as happy,do things in slightly different way. They practice positive and healthy habits that sets the foundation of lifelong values to their children.
If you seek perfection,there is no such thing. But,you can still try to be near it,by making small steps of improvement,day by day.
Today,with this extra fast living,it is almost impossible to gather all the members of your family at once. Each family member have different kinds of obligations throughout the day,so maybe,dinner is the only time during a work week,that you can be together.
It is good, if the families have already inherited and applied some small family traditions, that they can also improve and maybe update themselves with brand new ideas.
Gatherings can be set to once a week,or month,or on holidays ,so longlife memories will be set for future generations to come.
Weekend breakfast,movie nights,game nights,weekend getaways,decoration for holidays,etc.You have many choices on the platter served.Just pick them up or create your own.
Respect For People In Need
Giving back to those in need, is the best thing you can do if you want to help someone. At some point in life,you might be the one who will be in need and you might need help.You know how the “wheel of fortune” is turning around. It’s important to give often and allow your children to personally give as well.To understand the term of GIVING. To learn what compassion really means.
Practicing giving ,amplifies the positive gesture as a family. These gestures unite the family, while also teaching children about doing good deeds for others and sharing.
There are so many different things you can do as a family so you can create that positive vibe.
- Give away items from the house that you no longer need or use
- Donate clothes that you no longer use and still are in good shape
- Apply for volunteering somewhere
- Attend and participate in some kind of charity events
Practice internal family peace.Intentionally use kindness and compassion in situations that would normally create anger or upset.
Make a family rule that only positive, kind words are allowed to be spoken to each other. When feelings of anger arise, teach your children how to take deep breath to diffuse the negative emotion,and not to argue or get into a childish fight. The best way to teach these habits is when you practice them yourself.
If you want to have and create a happy family,do not miss out the simple joys in life. Find time for yourself and your family.Make everyday bonding.There are so many ways to do it. Plan and act.
Express and feel gratitude for the beauty and love in your family. Try and make everyday efforts to merge your family,so co-existence will be lifelong desire to maintain.
Just enjoy your time while you are together!
