Updated on February 1, 2012

Happy Life- how to have a happy family

Are you enjoying a happy family life right now or are you wanting to know how this can be achieved ?

We get married hopefully we are in love with our partner and yet we need to ask ourselves " Are we treating them with the love and respect they deserve ? Are we kind to our husband /wife ??

Do we spend enough time with them -work in together sharing the responsibility of caring for the children ?

Here are some ways to help you achieve a happy family life that will help you all .


Spend quality time together
Spend quality time together


" I Love You " 3 words yet how many times do you remember to say them to your husband/wife & then your children as they are growing up ?

We all need to be told we are loved and wanted . There are many ways you can show your love as well during the day in our actions toward each other .

A warm smile , A hug can mean a lot

Putting a note in your husbands lunch box,

An unexpected cup of tea/coffee

Keeping fresh and clean for your partner.

Show them respect like you would to others.

Don't talk down to them in public.

Talk nicely to each other.

little things can mean a lot .


Do you show Joy when your husband /wife comes home from work every day , let them know you are happy to have them back with you ?

A big smile , a kiss hello so they really feel like you are pleased to see him/her .

Joy is like a hardy plant - it can thrive in a hostile envoiroment yet how much better to be in a loving & caring household.

Talk to eac other

Isn't it pleasant when you are in a peaceful envioroment ,everyone is kind to each other , taking the time to appreciate each others qualities rather than picking on small minor faults every day.

In the big scheme of things does it really matter who puts the toilet seat down ?

Learning to say Thank you " " I am sorry " all contributes to a peaceful family life where everyone enjoys being with each other & is like a warm haven from the outside world.

Long Suffering

long-suffering - patiently bearing continual wrongs or trouble; "an enduring disposition"; "a long-suffering and uncomplaining wife"

None of us are perfect so we all need to learn to appreciate one another for who we are .

WE can always try to work on diferent areas to improve life , however rather than being sharp with one another learning to be long suffering will help us cope on a day to day basis.

However this does not mean putting up with abuse of any kind at all .

Be kind to your children

Play with your children
Play with your children


Kindness is an endearing quality in life especially when you show a genuine interest in each member of the family as well as others.

Really listening & understanding your partners needs will bring you closer as a couple & a family unit.

Teach your children to be kind from an early age &they will be well liked in the family, school & community.

It is a kindness to your children to discipline them when young , also teaching them the basics of life

washing their hands

how to blow their nose

How to respect people

How to be patient and so on

Play with your children, read them stories . Laugh with them & have fun !


Goodness is a moral excellence , not just what we do but what we are as a person & it is refreshing to have around

the state or quality of being good. 2. moral excellence; virtue. 3. kindly feeling; kindness; generosityIf all members in the family have this quality then you will have peace.


We have faith in the sun coming up every day
We have faith in the sun coming up every day


Have faith in yourself and the other members in your family . Be positive in life and help your husband & children work towards their goals instead of laughing or picking on them.

Have faith that God will fullfil his promises .

Faith without works is dead so work out what you need to do to keep your faith alive.


An answer when mild turns away rage so learn to be mild rather than angry when someone upsets you .

If you want a loving peaceful family life then learning to be mild tempered will go along way in helping you with this.

Be friendly

show self control
show self control

Self control

If you really love your family then learning self control is very important . Think of your husband /wife before you start flirting with someone else , how much trouble it can cause you in the long run , how many people could be hurt .

Why look at porn when you could be making love with your husband / wife rather than hurting them ?

If you spend a lot of time on the internet or other activities that don't include your partner and makes them feel unwanted then how can you have a happy family life ?

In a happy marriage you won't feel like your in a cage

After reading this have a think about what you can do yourself to help towards a happy family life .

As your husband /wife notices small changes in your attitude it can only make him / her love you even more !

      Hi Wheelinallover, Thanks for the visit & I hope you are keeping well . There is something to be said about being family orientated & thats what children want & need from their parents - not expensive gifts - Love & Attention. Be over USA this year !

      If you can show love for your spouse and children like written here you will have learned what the Amish have known all along. They are family oriented people who take care of their own from the cradle to the grave.

      They are taught from childhood to never show anger in public. They are trained to be kind, gentle, and to turn the other cheek. This image remains in marriage at least in public. From personal experience living with them as neighbors it doesn't change in private either.

      I enjoyed reading this, I have been with my husband for 24 yrs we met when he was 16 and I 18, we have had ups and downs but you ride through it together. We have 4 great sons and we all enjoy a simple family life. I think you have to learn to give and take and and give time to each other.
