Why Family is Important
Family is important because it provides love, support and a framework of values to each of its members. Family members teach each other, serve one another and share life’s joys and sorrows. Families provide a setting for personal growth. A family works together to overcome struggles and to provide happiness to each of its members.
Families provide all members with security, identity and values, regardless of age. When a member of the family feels insecure or unsafe, they turn to their family for help. They learn about a sense of self and gain a foundation for the rest of their lives. This foundation includes the family’s values which provide the basis for a strong moral code. Spending time with family shows individuals the value of love, appreciation and open communication.
We know that family provides us unconditional support and love to help navigate tough times, strength to endure the trials and tribulations of our busy lives, and a sense of direction and purpose when we may stray off the path of life. The challenge for modern families to build and sustain support and maintain active communication is often finding the time, resources, and tools to use. Life’s breakneck speed and widening fire hose of activities, events, and information present communication challenges that can inhibit timely and effective family communication.
This can be especially concerning for families with members who need extra attention, support, and motivation. Family members in need of extra support can present challenges especially if geography separates them from the core unit. The strength of today’s modern family often rests in the ability to build a support and communication network that relies on new technologies – tools put in place to facilitate active and open communication that are simple enough for anyone to understand and use.
Support for those who need it most
Support is a core element of the modern family unit. Although everyone in a family needs support, there are always individuals who may need extra attention for a variety of reasons. Perhaps a parent or grandparent needs consistent reminders to take their medications. The birth of a child can place extraordinary strain on family members who may need consistent physical or moral support. A new job or moving to a new location often requires extensive family support as an individual adjusts to a new environment and lifestyle.
Mental health problems are a good example of a condition that requires widespread family support. Family members afflicted with mental illness can be particularly difficult to reach, and even harder to help. As a result, other family members often play a large role in helping and supporting them. Learning how to support and encourage someone who has been hospitalized or experienced a similar mental health crisis can be a challenge without the proper communication tools in place.
