My guidelines for have peace and a functional family.
I proud to say that I have a funtional family, my family consists of Me of course. I am a 42 year old female. My husband, who is now 44. Together we have two wonderful boys, one 16 and one 12. I will not kid you and let you think that there is never any disagreements. We have plenty of them, sometimes over the smallest things like what shampoo we all like. I think that its the arguments that allow us to express ourselves and let our individuality show. I find that my guidelines for a functional family are as follows. First we have to respect each other as an individual, we have to show this by not being critical of everything that we each do. That is not always easy. We have to also respect each others personal property. Second I have found that we have to allow for somethings to go wrong and not harp on everything that doesn’t go our way. You’ve heard the saying “Pick your battles”. Third I find that you must express your love for one another and always tell them the simple words “I Love You” . You’ll find that if someone knows you love them, they will do most anything for you. Fourth I you believe that God is the creator of all you should make sure that you take your family to church. At church you will learn how to love others as yourself and most importantly the morals that you will instill in your children will stay with them when you are not. I think if you follow these four steps you will find your life to be much more at peace and your family will function more as one unit. Good luck to you all.
