How To Have A Happy Family Life
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 .
" 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.
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 - 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
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 !
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.
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 ?
Happy family life
After reading this have a think about what you can do yourself to help towards a happy family life .
You might want to improve cooking skills or maybe work on smiling / laughing more often .
As your husband /wife notices small changes in your attitude it can only make him / her love you even more !
