*Make family meal time a priority– get creative, if you can’t eat dinner together try for lunch or breakfast. Take turns picking out the menu, try new recipes or set a theme for meal conversations.
*Plan regular family fun nights – brainstorm what your family likes to do together and what fits into your budget. Some families go out to eat together, play board games, or go for a walk.
*Be intentional about maintaining meaningful family traditions – this may involve holidays, birthday celebrations, spiritual or religious practices, reading, or music.
*Let others in your family know they can count on you – keep a calendar or to-do list and make keeping your commitments a priority. If things happen, and they will, and you are unable to follow through, apologize and look for ways to regain the confidence of your family members.
