Concluding Remarks:

Most people urge to discover a proper technique to safeguard their family from gaps/conflicts. Conflicts are an inevitable part of domestic life. A family can fall prey to different form of conflicts, such as poor communication, excessive financial work, inequity between children, external grounds/conspiracies, etc. These conflicts should never be allowed to intensify; otherwise, they may jeopardize the family – your near and dear ones. Hence, before the conflicts overwhelm the family, the family should overcome the conflicts. The steps I posted before are highly useful to avoid gaps in family life.

Fifth Step to Effective Family Unity: Spiritual Efforts

 

Spiritual Efforts:

The efforts through which soul serenity is enhanced refer to as spiritual efforts. Just like a body, each family unit has a separate soul. The purity/impurity of any family depends on its soul. Therefore, family members should partake in spiritual endeavors to gain purity. Generally, purity in a family means the moral improvement of members. A few family-soul purification efforts are reinvigorating/initiating targets, meditating and praying together, discussing inspirational literature or sacred revelations, and promoting religious rituals.

Fourth Step to Effective Family Unity: Routines

Establish Routines:

Routines make life more organized. Research proves that a household performs best in active and regular routines. Apart from activeness and regularity, family routines are recommended to be simple as well, that is, they should not pressurize the members. An overlooked benefit of a routine structure, according to multiple pieces of research, is that effectiveness of the task performed as a routine, regularly, within a particular schedule/timetable, is increased significantly. General family routines include dining together, visiting parks at weekends, spending family time, and doing certain chores at specified junctures.

Third Step to Effective Family Unity: Cooperation

Share household Responsibilities & Assign Specific Chores:

Cooperation is just as important in a family life, as in a team. The sum total chores should be divided, according to household needs, and be assigned to members, consistent with their will and skill. For example, in traditional family setup, cooking task is assigned to mother, mowing effort to son, hosting by girls, financial struggle by father, etc. Fair sharing of household responsibilities wipes out any possibility of hatred and jealousy in the family; rather it greets peace and unity. Therefore, it is the duty of family head to share household responsibilities, equally and wisely, among all family members.

First Step to Effective Family Unity: Communication

Communication:

Research claims that open and frequent communication is the quality of strong and united families. Communication has two aspects, speaking and listening. Speaking means conveying ideas and feelings while listening means receiving ideas and feelings, i.e., giving heed to the speaker’s words. Getting into the nitty-gritty, speaking requires honesty whereas listening demands faithfulness. Family communication, in a few words, is a single process demanding two platforms – honest speaking and faithful listening. The upholding of both the platforms simultaneously is essential to cultivate a healthy and united family.
