How to Bond with Family

Updated on April 23, 2016

Reminders

First of all, you need to set a goal or a plan. List down the things each family member wants to do or where to go. After that, it is time to set a family meeting. A meeting can be set by eating dinner together. Afterwards, if all agrees, then it is settled.

Tip #1: Watch a movie together

We, the children, we're growing up. We have a tendency to want to watch movies with our friends or significant other. We're spending too much time with our friends than our family. Always remember, family comes first. Let's watch new movies with our parents, you know, movies that are less awkward if we're with them.

Tip #2: Have a family photoshoot

When was the last time all of you gathered for a photoshoot? It's time to capture new picture perfect memories! Get a photographer, dress up, makeup, and have that photoshoot. Frame that new family picture with happy smiles on your faces. Why is a picture very significant? Because every picture tells a story.

Tip #3: Go on a Vacation together

We always go on vacation trips with our friends. But what if it was with our parents? New places to go and new memories with them. They're getting old as well. Let's make them feel special by paying for that vacation. (If you already can tho. If not, then it's okay.) It's bad manners to keep a vacation waiting.

Tip #4: Don't forget to say "I Love You"

Blood is thicker than water. Don't forget to say "I love you" to your parents and siblings. It may be awkward to some of you, but really, your parents will appreciate it. I don't know with your siblings though. If they're still young, they'd say "Eeew" but obviously they don't mean it. Family is where life begins & love never ends.

      "Family is where life begins & love never ends." I agree 100%! Family is the first place we feel that unconditional love that gives us a sense of worth. Having many people in the home, however, brings with it both challenges and blessings. Your suggestion of having a family meeting is what helped our family during those growing years when we had many mouths to feed and very little income. Each meeting, we were able to solve a problem or make a plan that helped us get through.
