Thank God I'm able to finish this. Writing down our family values has been on my list since last year until this month.
According to this article, it is important to have family values.
Family values are important on many different levels of the family structure.
Establishing a Foundation for the Family
A foundation supports a family. When crises arise, the family is able to withstand them because of the stability of the relational structure.
Influencing Decision Making
Guidance for Raising Children
Parenting can be a challenge and with all of the world's influences, it can be downright scary. Knowing what you believe in as a parent and what you want for your children will help you raise them to be responsible and conscientious adults.
Protection from Outside Influences
If someone has a strong sense of what is right and wrong because of the values they were raised with, they are less likely to become victims of deviant influences.
Giving Family Meaning
While some family members may differ on views of some topics, most family members keep the largest, most influential, beliefs intact.
Helping Guide People in Relationships
Families with strong values are able to identify these values in others quickly, which then produces a new generation with similar beliefs.
Family values make you who you are. Do you mind sharing your family values?
