There are three primary things that each family member must do, these 3 includes the following: being open with your emotions and thoughts, practice self-discipline and most importantly respect. Don’t equate peaceful with the term silent for, these two things are entirely different especially when you talk about a successful living. By peaceful living it means living a family life that practice respect for individual differences, knowing when is the right time to interfere with personal issues of other members in the family and of course effective communication.
1. Respect for Every Family Member
In a family, it is vital that everyone will feel respected and that their actions are highly appreciated. It is also vital that you respect each member’s ideas and even their personal belongings. Take for example, if a particular member of your family feels lonely then you must not let it pass and just leave them alone. You must ask them why and just listen to their worries. Even if they’ll share their problems you are not really entitled to fix it, what they need is someone who can understand where they’re coming from.
Another way of showing respect is to be courteous in what you do. Sometimes those minor things that you say is already a big thing like please, thank you and so on. You can even ask them how did their day turn out and just listen to what they are sharing.
Showing respect to one’s ideas mean you have to constantly agree with what they are saying. Everyone has their own idea so perhaps you can also share your thoughts about a certain topic. Sometimes your children might have this wonderful ideas and listening to them can be good as well however this is not the case all the time. Sometimes what they really need is guidance and the wisdom of adults who have longer experience whenever their ideas are not that really good after all experience is the best teacher. The perspective of children is very different from the adults. If you are able to listen to what they are really thinking you’ll be surprise how wonderful it is and you can even learn something from it. You can also explain why a certain idea won’t work and just let them try their ideas so long as it won’t put them in grave danger.
Seemingly, many people seemed to forget age when they talk to a person older than them or younger than them thus it is really important to practice respect for one another within the family. One of the common reasons why people don’t bother listening to what others has to say is that they feel like the ideas they have are just senseless and absurd. Those people have their own course of life to follow, sooner they’ll realize how important it is to respect one another and this should start within the family.
