The Mother's School



Healthy Family Bonding

When I visited one of my friends at Ahmedabad, I saw the life of their family. There was very little communication between the family members. The child was in his room, and the parents were busy with their own work. The questions they asked their child were ''At what time do you have your tuition classes? What homework did you get from the school? Did you get any circular from the school? Did you get marks of any exam? How many marks did you get? Why did you get less mark? " etc. Then after this scolding of ten minutes, the communication stopped. The child would then talk to his friends continuously on the mobile. When I experienced this, a thought came to my mind "where is the family bonding? They don't have time for each other?". Parents want to earn more for their children and for themselves. I have started thinking, what is the use of hard work and money, if children for whom they are striving are not close to them? This set me thinking about the importance of family bonding. "Is it so difficult to develop?" These are 15 magical mantras of healthy family bonding.

1.     Start your day with a family prayer.
