15 Resolutions to Make Your Family Stronger.

1. Eat the evening meal in your own home, every immediate family member present, at least four nights a week. For the sake of quality, turn off the television. Ensure that the meal is not hurried by places to go and things to do. Just relax, eat and talk.

2. Go out on occasional “dates” with each of your children. Dinner and a movie, perhaps? These occasions do not need to be at night, nor do they require spending a lot of money. Dad can just as well take his 8-year-old daughter fishing, as to Chez Francois. This is about relationship and memory, not the final tab.

3. Make a significant reduction in the family’s “screen time.” In the electronic age, nothing so isolates us from one another as the screen. Instead of watching or surfing or zapping, talk to one another, take walks together, or just sit in the same room and read together.

4. Schedule an hour every week as uninterrupted family time – during which you play a game, plan your next vacation, discuss and resolve a family issue, or just sit and fidget. After all, sitting and fidgeting together is better than doing nothing at all together.

5. Teach your children domestic skills. Teach them how to do their own laundry, cook, repair a leaky toilet, and so on. You not only help them prepare for their futures as independent people but enable their contribution to the family unit’s welfare.

15. Hold regular family “silences.” Everyone sits in a room together, turn down the lights, close your eyes, and do nothing but listen to the sounds of your home for 10 minutes. As that becomes tolerable, increase the silence. See if you can get to an hour. This is relaxation as a family art form.
