Celebrating Builds Family Unity

Keeping Your Family First

Celebrating together as a family helps build unity and strengthens the bonds among members.

Celebrate major accomplishments, successes and marker events such as a new job, first driver's license, good grades in school, loss of the first tooth, birthdays or anniversaries.

Celebrations don't have to cost a lot of money. They can be simple little remembrances that make people feel important. Try setting the dinner table with special dishes. Add a special note of encouragement to a backpack or lunch box on days of a big test.

Make a family goal to celebrate something every week with simple, inexpensive recognitions. If your family is not accustomed to celebrating you will have to work at first, but the more you celebrate, the more all family members will get involved and be enriched by the family recognizing their accomplishments. Remember to celebrate mom's accomplishments as well.
