In life what matters most are the people who are closest to us—ur family. To a large extent we all are the products of our family; for most of us, the family unit remains the strongest influencing force in our lives.
As parents there is nothing more important in life than to seek happiness for our family. However, our busy lives leave us little time to dwell on this all-important issue. So, why not begin the New Year by resolving to bestow on your family this life-enhancing, magical gift of happiness?
Here are five special ingredients that can promote Family Happiness:
Love is the binding essence that permeates within the confines of the family. It is the foundation on which the structure of the family can be built. It is therefore important for parents to focus on what truly is priceless: namely the act of loving and caring. In a loving family, each family member strives to be kind, helpful and considerate to all others in the family irrespective of their age, interests, appearances or choices they may make in life.
In an ideal family, the parents have a sense of deep commitment to ensure family happiness. They enthusiastically take on the responsibility of providing the right kind of environment for their family and make certain that all the intrinsic and extrinsic needs of their family are met with. It is this focused commitment and generosity of spirit that can go a long way in promoting family happiness.
Another important secret to family happiness is the values ingrained in children right from the early age. Values like honesty, compassion, kindness, courtesy and sharing are important aids to developing healthy relationships that can last a lifetime. The parents, who are the backbone of the family, can help children to imbibe the family values which can help children face the challenges and endure the stress and storms in their adult years.
Good communication between family members is of critical importance in nurturing family happiness. Communicating positive feelings creates a sense of well-being within the family. Parents, who spend plenty of uninterrupted time with their children, can help them to succeed in accomplishing their goals. Success and attainment of goals, brings a good measure of family happiness
Respect is the fundamental trait that nurtures healthy relationships and is an important factor in gaining family stability and happiness. When parents treat all those whom they come in contact with respectfully, they pass this fine habit to their kids. In such a household, the children are aware that they need to respect their sibling's rights to privacy, ownership and freedom. This contributes immeasurably to cooperation and family happiness.
Although happiness may be fleeting at times, human affection created by strong family ties, can last a lifetime. The love, affection and strong bond shared by members of the family are the greatest gifts you can bestow on your family. By cherishing these precious gifts, you can usher in an abundance of family happiness beginning this New Year and ALWAYS!
