Keeping family relationships healthy can be more of a challenge than it should be in our workaholic, time-starved and cash-strapped society, and focusing too much on any one thing can often have a detrimental effect on family relationships.
We are supposed to work in order to live and yet far too often these days it appears that people are living for no other reason than to work. If this sounds familiar then you need to begin setting up positive relationship habits sooner rather than later. Allocate weekly time commitments for things that are vital to the health of your family relationships, including attending your son’s football match, scheduling date nights for you and your partner, and bathing your children at least once or twice a week.
Such commitments need to be non-negotiable and take precedence over anything happening at work. Time with your children is precious while they still are children, and you will not get to make time with your partner if they end up leaving due to neglect.
