Tips for Healthy Family Relationships

By Rachel Shouse

Your family is, hopefully, your No. 1 priority. Maybe No. 2 if you're a person of faith. Your spouse, children, parents, siblings, etc., are probably what pushes you to be a better person. Not that your family looks down on you. We all have room for improvement. Making those changes and corrections together, as a unit, solidifies those relationships. It proves, not just says, how important each person is. When you do that, put that effort in, you'll reap generations of benefits as children are likely to apply these habits to their children. You're changing your family tree and creating new and healthy traditions.

Build Healthy Relationships: See the Benefits for Generations

Building something strong, dependable, and reliable doesn't happen overnight. It takes time, determination, and consistency. Imagine that each struggle your family overcomes is a block. Think about building a foundation. The wise man did build his house upon the rock. With each block, your family grows stronger. 

All families will be shaken and tested at some point. Life does that -- unfortunately. Don't let problems discourage you though. See them as opportunities to fix something. We, as humans, tend to be a dramatic group, to be honest. I can remember a few struggles I went through that seem like a drop in the bucket now. Remember that there is light at the end of a tunnel -- even during hard times.

Pick Your Battles

Power struggles must rank in toddlers' top five ways to make their parents crazy. It seems so minuscule. A super tiny vegetable, a pea, can render a whole 20-pound human being all but catatonic. You did the right thing by encouraging your child, but remember that it's one vegetable. I'm sorry for saying this, but most kids go through a picky stage. Limiting power struggles can bring a lot of much needed peace to your dinner table.

Ways to Spend Productive Quality Time Together

It's important that families enjoy each other. It's much too easy to let ourselves get sucked into everyday life and become rather apathetic in our relationships. This happens in the vast majority of relationships at some point. However, there are a few things you and your family can do together that also helps you out as a whole.

  • Meal plan as a family
  • Complete nightly chores together
  • Bring one child to the store with you each trip

Spending quality time with your people doesn't have to eliminate all of your extra time or kick you in the wallet. Sometimes letting your child dust with you or sit with you while you work is everything to them. They don't care what's going on, they just want you.
