  • If you have a happy family, you have everything.
  • A happy family is what people desire.
  • You need to be aware of these secrets to have a picture perfect family.

If you have a happy family, you have everything but the fact cannot be ignored that happiness in a family is not always there because a time comes where a family does not live together after a certain point of time. Kids grow up to become adults, every individual in the family has a life now and the family is no more a family, it is just a group of individuals, who are just residing together.

Not many people have a picture perfect family, where they all sit together, eats together. A happy family is what people desire and if you too want to have a happy family, you need to be aware of these secrets.

Have a look!


Eat together

If possible, have dinner together, make time for it. Indeed it is a fact that “a family that eats together stays together”. You may be blood related but even you need to know each other better and when you eat together, you get to know each other better. If you are a small family and you have small children, come early from work and try to have dinner with your small kids because a full family dinner can be a part of great environment for them. If you have teenagers, try to have everyone at the dinner table, with no television and no phones at the dinner table. It should be the food and the entire family, a great recipe for a happy family.


Talk to each other

Just talk. Be it anything, be it whatever, just talk. You can randomly talk about a soap-opera or how your day was at work. The idea is to stay connected along with having something to return to. There should be some motivation; there should be something that your kids can look forward to. A family that does not talk, does not have anything to share to each other, is a happy family because they connect.


Learn to put family before friends

All your weekends don’t have to have friends in them; you can every other weekend go out with family. You can surely go out with friends but do have some weekends booked for family. Go out on picnics, have brunch and lunch together. Just gather the family and go out on weekends. Friends are fun but family can be more fun, just give it a try.


Your spouse exists

Give time to your husband or wife. Don’t always put parents, brothers, sisters and kids first. Once in a while, plan a dinner date, maybe a weekend getaway. Don’t let the love die because they are also family.
