Stephen Souky - Practical Tips to Building A Healthy Family Relationship

Stephen Souky grew up enjoying being around his family and believes that in today’s busy world, parents need to be ingenious in building a healthy family relationship. Family time is fun, essential and vital to a healthy family relationship. But how do you find the time to spend with your kids when you have a busy job. Here are some practical tips you can use to build a healthy family relationship.

Family Meals
One of the best ways you can spend time building your family relationship is by sitting down and having your meals as a family. Of course if you cannot do it morning and night, you might want to do it for at least one meal. Turn off the television and sit with the family and enjoy a meal together. The time spent at the dining table will help build a healthy family relationship. Talk to each other at the table, and avoid talking about work, but speak about anything else that the kids can join in.

Play Together
While you might not be able to do this every day, schedule the weekend for family time and play with your kids. If you kids like playing baseball or football, get them together and play a game of baseball or football. Show them a couple of tips and help them better their game. A good idea would be to go bowling with your kids on a Saturday afternoon, or do something that they like. There is nothing more important than spending time with your family.

Dump Technology
Technology has taken up a major portion of our lives, and we seem to be too dependent on technology. A good idea would be to turn off your electronic devices, phones, tablets, etc. and spend time chatting with your family. It would surprise you how much you can learn just by spending time talking with them.
