May is Family Month

National Family Month is a five-week period between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, and places focus on the parents as the most influential people and support system for their children. It coincides with the end of most school years when family vacations start, and they spend more time together. National Family Month was started by KidsPeace, a private, not-for-profit organization that has dedicated itself to helping children attain the confidence and develop the courage to face and overcome adversity.

 

During this time families are encouraged to spend time building close bonds and doing things with each other and appreciating those closest to you.

 

Have fun as a family, whether it is taking a family vacation or simply doing chores around the house. Build relationships and develop family rituals.

Hold family meetings and learn to listen more. Create a loving stress-free environment for sharing feelings and resolving conflicts.

Set family goals

Show love and affection

Pray together

Discuss important decisions any family member may be having and offer support and guidance.

Have family game night

Plan, shop and cook a meal together.

Try new things together

Eat breakfast together. Start the day on a positive note.

All children are different, be sure to spend one on one time doing something unique to suit each child’s personality.

Lead by example. Your children are watching, even when you think they are not.

 

Child-development experts have described “family” as “someone who has a strong emotional attachment to another.”

 

Becoming a family by birth or by heart is something you can never fully understand unless you experience it. Even then, it’s almost impossible to put into words the love you feel for these precious little ones. Building strong family bonds and having open communications over the years will come in very handy when things go a little crazy (and they will) just remember a couple of things. What does not kill you makes you stronger. This too shall pass, and “Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.” – Phyllis Diller
