How do you understand family values?
In your home, family values are certain rules and ideals by which you live, trying not to violate them. The list of basic family values can be endless, but these, 10 of the best, for each family are unique.
Clearly defined family values help to strengthen the foundation for building a strong and united family. When the relationship lasts for a long time, often in them there are weaknesses, especially when life does not go according to plan. Strong and consistent family values play an important role in building confidence and confidence for each family member. Here are 10 basic family values.
- Belonging. It is very important for me that every member of the family feels that they love him, that he belongs to someone, and that he is significant. Creating a cohesive family means that you spend every free moment together, arrange family events, but you mean that all people are different. Creating a strong family relationship is fine, but every person should have freedom for the activities that, in his opinion, bring him pleasure. People become more bold and risk-averse if they know that they have a safe place to go back to when something has failed. Join the whole family not only on special occasions, but just spend time together, this helps to strengthen the sense of belonging. More
- Flexibility. Despite the already established order in the family and the foundations, do not forget to sometimes show flexibility in your decisions. Unwillingness to show a little loyalty can bring a lot of misfortunes and grievances. The more flexibility you show in making decisions, the happier your family will be. Imagine if one of the family members will always believe that only he is the one right - it will not bring much happiness in the family. More
- Respect. Its a bit harder to define. To respect each other is to take into account the feelings, thoughts, needs and preferences of others when making decisions. This also means recognizing and appreciating the opinions, feelings and participation of the family as a whole. The only way to earn and preserve the respect of people is to show that you yourself respect them. Respect, as a very important family value, will manifest itself at home, and in school, at work and in other public places. More
- Honesty. This is the basis for continuing any relationship. Mother-daughter, husband-wife, sister-brother. Without honesty, it will not be possible to create and maintain a relationship. Encourage honesty, showing understanding and respect when someone tells you about their wrong actions. If we lose him and become angry, when someone confesses to us in his bad deed, then next time he just hides it to avoid disrespect. More
- Forgiveness. Forgiving people who offended you is a very important choice. Yes, forgiveness is a choice. It's not some kind of feeling that accidentally gnaws at you when you feel that another person is very "hurt." This can be difficult, since many of us tend to equate forgiveness to the phrase * everything is fine *. It's not the same. The hidden insult does not promote mutual respect between close relatives. Keep in mind that everyone makes mistakes, we all sometimes say things that should not be said, because none of us is perfect. Try to adequately resolve problem situations, achieve understanding and move on. Life is too short. More
- Generosity. To give, without thinking, "what I get in return" is an important quality for those who want to become a responsible, useful member of society. Thanks to generosity, we manage to empathize and empathize, because we are trying to understand what people want or need. To be generous is not simply to give money to those who need them. This is also your time, love, attention and even sometimes your property. More
- Curiosity. Children are very curious by nature. If you watched the baby, even a couple of minutes, then you would clearly see this quality. For some, this curiosity is weakening. I think it's important to encourage and encourage our children, and even ourselves, to be curious about things. How to rekindle our curiosity? Ask a lot of questions. Read about what you know very little about and do not be afraid to say that you do not know something. Critical thinking is an important skill that can be learned and developed through the study of one's own curiosity.
- Communication. Communication is both an art and a science. The inability to communicate is likely to lead to misfortunes and misunderstandings. Small problems develop into larger ones, and when they eventually boil and float to the surface, then it is unlikely that they can be solved safely. Communication is much more than mere communication of the mind. In addition to oral speech, communication also extends to tone, volume, facial expression, eyes, gestures. I believe that this is the most important value for the family. When people feel that they can openly talk about anything - hopes, dreams, fears, successes or failures - without fear of condemnation, it encourages and strengthens the bond between people. More
- Responsibility. We all would like to be considered responsible people. Some of us are such, and some are not. Responsibility appears with experience. As a child, you may have been shown how to clean your toys after you played, how to clean your room, how and when to feed the dog. This sense of responsibility increases in adulthood. An adult person who has an inner sense of responsibility does not need to be forced to come to work on time, respond to phone calls or perform work on time. Be responsible in the family to instill this quality to each of them. More
- Traditions. This is certainly the most fun for me. I think that traditions, this is what makes a family unique, unites people and creates a sense of belonging for all. Traditions should not be expensive, complex or requiring much work. It can be something simple, for example, * lazy Saturday *, when you just sip coffee, communicate all together, or a family celebratory dinner, when the whole family gathers at the same table. If you currently do not have traditions in your family, create them! All the traditions came from a particular person, why not let your family traditions start with you? Be creative and have fun. More
