Are we building a happy family foundation?
Having a healthy family background can help every child grow up with quality and create a society that deserves to exist and continue to thrive. The question is how to know if our family has a good enough foundation or not. Let’s check the list of the following 7 items.
1. Conduct of parents
Parents are examples for all children, and they are idols that children have seen since they were young. Try to observe yourself first and ask if you have behaved well enough as a parent today. How much do you care and how do you raise your child?
2. Give freedom of thought and action
The foundation of a happy family is that everyone must be able to express their thoughts and actions. This means that children will learn to use their ideas and be ready to listen to other people’s opinions as well, without being selfish or self-centered. Any issue that parents deem inappropriate can always be discussed and addressed through admonishment.
3. Always have time for the child
Every child needs time, and a parent’s attention is more valuable than anything money can buy. The best way to build healthy family relationships is for parents to spend time with their children, doing activities and things together that bring happiness that money can’t buy. This helps children feel fully supported and loved.
4. If there is a quarrel in the family, the matter must be ended immediately
It is normal for every family to have conflicts and disagreements. However, this does not mean that the family is not warm. If parents or adults can identify the cause of the disagreement and are ready to find a solution as quickly as possible, it helps children see the love that their parents have for each other and understand the reality of society without resistance.
5. Always understand your child’s thoughts
Parents naturally go through a lot of life experiences. To build a happy family foundation, it’s important to understand the thoughts of children as well. Parents should reflect on their own experiences at their child’s age and try to understand what their child might be thinking. This is related to age-appropriate development, and if parents support it without damaging it, the child can do their best.
6. Always teach your children, anyone can make a mistake
Always try to teach your child that anyone can make mistakes, but it’s important to learn how to forgive and give others a chance. Even parents can make mistakes, but it’s essential to live a happy life and not cause trouble for others.
7. Always create a sense of humor for each other
Creating happy family warmth is very easy; just try to be humorous or always find a way to laugh. Fighting and frowning can be stressful, and any child wouldn’t want to stay at home if the atmosphere was like that.
To sum things up, the foundation of a good happy family is not limited to just these 7 checklists, but it requires diligent parenting in every aspect and finding positive parenting techniques in all dimensions. This will help children grow up to become good adults in society. It’s not difficult at all.
