During holiday time as a start, spend one-on-one time with your children. This way parents and children can openly share their feelings and ask questions without fearing what others in the family might think. Meeting with each child regularly, even if only for a few minutes, to discuss their goals and concerns can open the door to quite valuable teaching opportunities. Build relations of love and trust.
Children grow to respect parents who are honest with them and they grow to distrust those who are not. By teaching and consistently living true principles, parents can help their children develop spiritual and moral values. Among the most important of these principles is a parent's willingness to apologize.
Children appreciate it when parents admit they have made mistakes and they learn that everyone makes mistakes and everyone can change. Think first. Although family disagreements are normal, the emotions of a difficult moment can cause family members to say things they later regret. Taking time out to think through an issue before reacting and considering the effect your words will have on other family members, and provide a calming moment to find alternative ways to express one's feelings.
SABINA SAYS: Make your home a haven from the trials and conflicts of the outside world - a place of acceptance and strength. Families should strive to create a peaceful climate in their home by quickly resolving differences, keeping bickering to a minimum and showing appreciation to their family members.
