Simple Ways To Foster Family Unity

We all know how it goes from time to time. You want your family to spend time together, to share plenty of good moments, but then...life, pesky old life gets in the way and all too often we’re left living our individual lives rather than spending some quality time as a unit. This is how it goes in the 21st century, but it doesn’t always have to be like this. There are a few tips and tricks you can implement in your family that’ll bring people together and make the home a more enjoyable space to be.

The Ideal Space


Now, if you’re a teenager and you have everything you need in your bedroom, why would you choose to hang out in the communal family living room? You wouldn’t...unless that room was just as good/even better than their own bedroom. Make the living room a space where people want to be. Add a good TV, add some Comfy Sacks, even throw in a games console or two. It’ll become the place for people to hang out and have fun together - an easy way to bring the family together, essentially!

Cutting the Cords


It’s next to impossible for a home not to have a TV, even if it would do wonders for people’s peace of mind, among other benefits. The same goes for the internet. However, there’s no rule that says these things must be running 24 hours a day. What if, instead, you have periods where the cord is cut, where the internet password is changed, and people have to occupy their time by other methods? It’s a bold move that’ll likely face hostility, but whip out the board games for a family session and they’ll soon forget it. Everyone can benefit from switching off every now and again!

Set Times


When the children get older, they tend to develop their own social lives and sometimes you’ll only ever see them as the rush in from school just to get changed before they’re out again. You can’t control that stage of life, but you can incorporate set times each week as “family time”. It could be as simple as a trip to the cinema or big family dinner; whatever it is, you’ll have established a time that everyone accepts and be able to all spend time together without complaint.

Pitching In


It takes a lot of energy and manpower to keep a big house operating at full capacity. Your children won’t think about it by themselves, of course, but that doesn’t mean they should get away without doing anything. By setting a rota of tasks for everyone in the house to complete, you’ll be making sure everyone takes responsibility for their position in the house - and always be teaching them valuable life lessons that will hold them in good stead in the future!

One on One Time


Finally, if you have a large family that set some time for one - on - one sessions. You don’t have to do everything as a group, and devoting time to each of your children individually will bring you closer to them, and thus the family closer together too!
