WHAT MAKES A STRONG FAMILY?
Everybody wants a strong and lovely bond in the family. But some criticizes, fade it. But don’t worry, we can help. We designed some essential traits that solve that what makes a strong family.
10 TRAITS ESSENTIAL TO A STRONG, HAPPY FAMILY
The most important trait in strong, happy families is commitment. Commitment to the team- putting the family first—and commitment to each individual on the family in helping him or her become everything he or she can. With commitment comes the desire to help family members reach their potential. A winning attitude is, I’ll forgo my own immediate gratification to help a family member succeed, because I know the personal joy that I experience when I help another family member
Do you let your family members know that they are appreciated? Do you give them positive attention? Strong families focus on the strengths of each other – not the faults. If you think your family needs improvement in this area, try serving a compliment at each practice.
I really like the way that you…. one of the things I like best about you is… you make me happy when you…
You have real talent when it comes to….
You make me proud when you…
Healthy families enjoy being together. They work together, play together and enjoy leisure times together. They may be very busy, but they plan time together.
To understand each other, a family has to be willing to invest the time necessary to share their feeling and opinions.
Because you are a product of your experiences each day you are a new person. Without talking and listening to each other, family members can soon become strangers.
Praying together, as well as praying for one another is extremely important for a strong, happy family. Worshipping together is a bonding experience.
SENSE OF HUMOUR
Happy families have fun together, they play together they laugh together. Having a sense of humour during tense, troublesome moments defuses the tension and has an immediate calming effect.
Flexibility is an important trait in strong families, especially when it comes to sharing responsibility and roles. If family, members do whatever is necessary to meet each other’s needs even if the task does not happen to be on their list, everyone is happier.
The more that family member has in common, the more they tend to do together. Having similar interests and developing common goals gives the family something to look forward to, to plan toward, and to experience together.
SERVICE TO OTHER
Your own problems and worries can become insignificant when seen from the perspective of others who have so much less than you.
Healthy families are not problem-free; they just admit to problems and get the help they need to solve them! The longer a problem drags on without a solution, the more discouraging family life becomes.
Do not allow this to happen.
When you are a big enough person to admit you are not perfect and when you choose to get the help you need, not only will you gain the respect of your family, but you will find that your goal of living happily ever after is attainable after all.
