How to keep your family together

Updated on May 22, 2010

Keeping your family together isn’t an easy task. Especially if you’re the type of person who runs around getting dressed for work, rushing the kids to school etc. A family may fall apart from two different reasons. Breaking apart means either emotionally or physically. Emotionally would mean you are not spending enough time with them, are yelling at your family members, or doing something that they do not like - specifically something to hurt their feelings. If your family ends up breaking apart physically, it may be because the mother or the dad has a drinking problem and social services might have taken the kids away. The grandparents could also be taking care of the children now.

  • In any case, the first thing you need to do is apologize to the whole family and let them know you have a problem. Tell them you will change your ways and really try to work on it.
  • Now is the time to start showing action. This means for whatever you are doing wrong, get help for it. If you are yelling at everyone constantly because you work too much - slow down. Cut your work hours and hire a therapist if possible.
  • For the moms or dads who are beginning to drink heavily, don’t! Find a fun activity to do with your kids like going to their after school game or even taking them out for a fun sport. You all can go out as a family too.
