A Caring Family

Happy-Family-silhouette-500Family Relationships Make A Family Strong  And Successful

 

Learning – Families are where we learn values, skills, and behavior. Strong families manage and control their learning experiences. They establish a pattern of home life. They select appropriate television programs. They guide their children into the world outside the home. They do not let social forces rule their family life. They involve themselves in neighborhood, school, government, church, and business in ways that support their family values. Strong families teach by example and learn through experience as they explain and execute their values.

Loyalty – Strong families have a sense of loyalty and devotion toward family members. The family sticks together. They stand by each other during times of trouble. They stand up for each other when attacked by someone outside the family. Loyalty builds through sickness and health, want and good fortune, failure and success, and all the things the family faces. The family is a place of shelter for individual family members. In times of personal success or defeat, the family becomes a cheering section or a mourning bench. They also learn a sense of give and take in the family, which helps prepare them for the necessary negotiations in other relationships.

Love – is at the heart of the family. All humans have the need to love and to be loved; the family is normally the place where love is expressed. Love is the close personal blending of physical and mental togetherness. It includes privacy, intimacy, sharing, belonging, and caring. The atmosphere of real love is one of honesty, understanding, patience, and forgiveness. Such love does not happen automatically; it requires constant daily effort by each family member. Loving families share activities and express a great deal of gratitude for one another. Love takes time, affection, and a positive attitude.

Laughter – is good family medicine. Humor is an escape valve for family tension. Through laughter we learn to see ourselves honestly and objectively. Building a strong family is serious business, but if taken too seriously, family life can become very tense. Laughter balances our efforts and gives us a realistic view of things. To be helpful, family laughter must be positive in nature. Laughing together builds up a family. Laughing at each other divides a family. Families that learn to use laughter in a positive way can release tensions, gain a clearer view, and bond relationships.

Leadership – is essential. Family members, usually the adults, must assume responsibility for leading the family. If no one accepts this vital role, the family will weaken. Each family needs its own special set of rules and guidelines. These rules are based on the family members’ greatest understanding of one another, not forces. The guidelines pass along from the adults to the children by example, with firmness and fairness. Strong families can work together to establish their way of life, allowing children to have a voice in decision making and enforcing rules. However, in the initial stages and in times of crisis, adult family members must get the family to work together.

VIOLENCE & RESPONSIBILITY

No_Violence-2014-11-12-500Why Blame Police

I am so SICK and TIRED of seeing this same incident where Michael Brown was shot and killed by Police.  In the end, it didn’t matter who was guilty, citizens of Our Country RIOTED and DESTROYED property belonging to Citizens of Our Country.

From the very beginning, people LIED about Brown being shot in the back.  Then AL SHARPTON FANNED THE FLAMES OF RACIAL UNREST, THE TRUTH DID NOT MATTER TO THIS MAN OF GOD!!!!

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child.

Part of being an ADULT is accepting responsibility for your actions.

NOW!!!!  WHO IS RESPONSIBLE????  This is so funny that it hurts, we have a VERY LARGE percentage of ADULTS in Our Country that through their own actions, are training the next generation of teenagers that not only being a LIAR is acceptable, but VIOLENCE is acceptable, and we already know MURDER is acceptable since roughly 3,700 Babies are killed everyday.

“Gang violence is connected to bullying is connected to school violence is connected to intimate partner violence is connected to child abuse is connected to elder abuse is connected. It’s all connected.”

I have a Publication from the CDC, Connecting the Dots:  An Overview of the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence .  It is very obvious who is responsible for the VIOLENCE in the World of today.  EVERY ADULT IN OUR COUNTRY IS GUILTY!!!!  Just like EVERY Adult in this World of Ours is GUILTY.

It is not too late to MAN UP, WOMAN UP, COWBOY UP, (some of you know me, you already know who I am hardest on…. OK SINCE WHEN IS A FOOTBALL TEAM’S NAME MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR YOUNG-ONES????) COME ON INDIN UP!!!!  All it takes is starting over, and through peer pressure, we hold the line.  WE TAKE OUR CHILDREN BACK 1 CHILD AT A TIME, AND WE CHANGE LAWS 1 LAW AT A TIME.
