Family still makes time for each other Weekends are put aside for family Family celebrates occasions E.g. Mother’s Day Visit relatives Family outings Family have meals together often
Many parents and children have strong bonds Teens turn to parents as they are more experienced Parents do give space for their child to be more expressive Communication Trust Parents are lenient as they trust that their child are more independent as they grow.
A busy schedule should not be a reason for families to drift apart Parents to put themselves in the shoes of their child to relate better Be more open-minded when communicating with their child Children should change their mindset on who to turn to when troubled Being reprimanded = love and concern Take this as a hurdle in life and do their part
