Sustainable and Peaceful Family Living – How to Achieve It

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. This merely implies a great respect for everybody, right conduct and treatment, knowing one’s limitations and effective manner of speaking one’s thoughts and emotions.

1. Practice Utmost Respect to Everyone

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. For instance, if someone feels vexed or they feel lonely then don’t just shrug it off. It is vital that to ask them why and if they are ready to open up just listen to their problems. Don’t feel like you have to do something in order to fix the problem because this is their own battle, what you can do is to be their for them and give them support in anyway you can.

Another way of showing respect is to be courteous in what you do. Even those simple thank you and please is already a sign of being polite. Another thing is asking how was their day is another thing.

Another thing that you need to know is that respect for a person’s ideas doesn’t mean you will conform to what they are telling you. You can probably share what you have in mind too. 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. If the ideas they have are a bit raw or not really good then the wisdom of adults comes very helpful. 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. It would be good as well if you are able to expound why a certain concept won’t work and just let them put their ideas into action as long is this will not cause any harm.

But the sad thing is people seemed to disregard the age of the person they’re talking to that is why respect is vital thing in one’s 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.

Sometimes all you need is a trusted person who can guide you along the way and there’s no other person capable of doing it than Stephen Troese Jr.
