We all want to belong, it is our inherent desire, and it’s why we cooperate, support common causes, feel nationalism, and that’s the reason for building villages, or cities. Fortunately, for us, that desire has been begun with loving parents and siblings in a home, which was our laboratory for experimenting with our potential, beliefs, and identity.

Family is the first and the most critical place for involving in, as it meets our belonging needs in addition to having people by our side through hard times, providing us with confidence, and helping us to be strong enough to face our problems.

Clearly, there is no doubt we all need to foster our family connections and enhance relationships within our families amid our daily routines get in the way of time together. To make things easier, here are some suggestions to do that.

Don’t forget the special occasions and events

Like birthdays and anniversaries. Try to message your family members via social media sites, for example, to send them your greetings, your good wishes, and share glad memories with them, it is quicker than sending cards if you like.

Spend an amazing time with your family

To share your ideas, stories, and hopes with them or asking them about their day. Watching a movie together is also an effective way. Even while having dinner it would be a great time to talk and to bring family members closer to one another.

Try to fix conflicts and struggles

All of us get annoyed and make odds within our relationships, mostly within our families. Some actions cause lasting disconnections. However, most struggles can be resolved when the family members are able to good listening, discussing solutions and forgive.

Use the Internet and social media sites to keep in touch with your family

Using the Internet and social media sites can help you stay connected with your family wherever you are through Skype and other apps. This includes communication with grandparents and grandchildren, siblings that separated throughout home placements and family members who are on business.

Arrange family visits and gatherings

Family visits and aggregations can take your relationships with your family further. Even if only once a year or every few years. Surely, you know that without involvement and arrangement, time moves so fast, and the best intentions won’t take place then.

Show appreciation for every member of your family

It’s important to show respect for everyone for doing his or her duties well. For example, praising at a teenager for taking care of his little sibling. That will make them feel that they are a significant part of the family and do their best.

Work with your family as a team

When you work with your family as a team, every member feels confessed for their contribution. Share household chores, for example, let your little children participate in chores like putting their shoes back or picking up their toys. You could also work with your family to clean the farm or to pick fruits while singing songs together. That would help your relationship a lot.

Give hugs and kisses to your family members

Usually expressing physical emotion is serious for each one’s emotional well-being. This is important for Moms and Dads, as well as their children. Cuddling can give your children self-confidence and the ability to face any problem they are exposed to.

Call them regularly

While technology makes keeping in touch with your family comfortable and quick, though it is not like talking to someone and hearing his or her voice directly. We are social beings, and we need regular communication as well as outstanding social interaction. When distance and circumstances ban visits, phone calls can help to keep family connections and relationships.

Being aware of each other’s limitations

One of the good advice is not to exceed the limits with each other to keep your relationship with your family secure and well.

Many of the problems related to relationships in general and in family relationships mainly are caused because of exceeding the limits between each other, and that includes many actions. For example, using the other party’s items without permission.


Many problems of young people could be a result of not having a good connection with their family. Even in wealthy families, many young people feel empty and almost tend to negative sources to feel some kind of connection.

In other words, lots of us value our families but might not be aware of the prominence of strengthening our family ties. Sometimes, it demands too much work to elevate a successful family. However, it is all worth that effort.
