Family Bonding

Posted on October 20th, 2008 in Home & Family by admin

Most people are getting busy these days including the children and the ample time for a family to have a bonding activities seems to be out-of-this-world already.  Everyone is becoming busy to their individual activities.

The facts of life today is that head of the family is busy of providing the family finacial needs.  Mother noticed the effort father exert seems to be not enough so mother decided to have an extra job as well.  The older brother and sister are busy chating with friends online, or might be occupied in building their character in an online game.

The different environment the family is dealing with makes it difficult to have a bonding session.  Not mention that the only accepted facts which bonding could be done is to have a vacation in some place where family does not yet gone through.

This is obviously expensive and applicable for those who can afford only.  But don’t you know that you could make bonding session cheaper yet the members of the family could really enjoy each other company, there motivating all the member on how to value life?

Well, I know we have different point of views here, but I am sure everyone wants to have their family complete in the dining table once in a while if not every day.  The first step to be done here if to set your mind and all the family members that there will be an activities to be done on the following day or maybe during the week ends.

You may want to set up that there will be a general cleaning day on the next Saturday or you can schedule a time where everybody are present on that day.  Schedule the tasks to be done.  Let the children clean their own rooms.  Mother or father should not forget to prepare a good snack.  The snack time will be one of the best time for the family to have a bonding session.

I would like to reiterate that because of individual differences and culture, you might not agree with some of the details mentioned here, but if you really want to have a peace and loving citizens that will contribute to good life of the world, you should start doing this at home first and foremost.
