The Keys to a Successful Family Living
There are three primary things that each family member must do, these 3 includes the following: being open with your emotions and thoughts, practice self-discipline and most importantly respect. Keep in mind that there is a difference between peaceful living and being silent. By peaceful living it means living a family life that practice respect for individual differences, knowing when is the right time to interfere with personal issues of other members in the family and of course effective communication.
1. Respect for Every Family Member
In a family, it is vital that everyone will feel respected and that their actions are highly appreciated. One of the best ways to do this is respect their personal space, ideas and even their emotions. Take for example, if a particular member of your family feels lonely then you must not let it pass and just leave them alone. You must ask them why and just listen to their worries. Even if they’ll share their problems you are not really entitled to fix it, what they need is someone who can understand where they’re coming from.
Another form of respect is being polite to everybody. Those simple greetings like thanks and please is already a sign that you are acknowledging their help and presence. You can even ask them how did their day turn out and just listen to what they are sharing.
Showing respect to one’s ideas mean you have to constantly agree with what they are saying. Everyone has their own idea so perhaps you can also share your thoughts about a certain topic. Sometimes your children might have this wonderful ideas and listening to them can be good as well however this is not the case all the time. If the ideas they have are a bit raw or not really good then the wisdom of adults comes very helpful. The perspective of children is very different from the adults. Learning something doesn’t always mean you have to listen from a more knowledgeable person, people with the same age as yours sometimes listening to your kids is a good avenue for learning. You can also explain why a certain idea won’t work and just let them try their ideas so long as it won’t put them in grave danger.
Seemingly, many people seemed to forget age when they talk to a person older than them or younger than them thus it is really important to practice respect for one another within the family. There are a lot of reasons why these things happen; some it includes the idea that a certain person doesn’t have any good thing to say so people end up not listening to their ideas. At this point, those people has their entire lifetime to learn things and understand the essence of respect.
Sometimes all you need is a trusted person who can guide you along the way and there’s no other person capable of doing it than Stephen Troese Jr.
