Every family functions differently, which makes it hard to find a unique solution which will apply to all problems. Instead, as the family grows, you will need to invest in making sure that peace and order are kept, and that everybody has a place of their own.

Setting the house rules

Every family functions differently, which makes it hard to find a unique solution which will apply to all problems. Instead, as the family grows, you will need to invest in making sure that peace and order are kept, and that everybody has a place of their own.

Goofing around is all fine and dandy, but there should be limits. However, do not just order your kids around, nobody likes that. Did you like it when you were a kid? Probably not. Do not try to start a vengeance just because you were told off when you were a bit naughty. Instead, try to come up with rules together, as a family, so that everyone will know exactly what their chores are, and what is allowed. Moreover, include what your kids have to say as well, because they might have good ideas, and including them in the process will make them feel more appreciated.

Be supportive

Being there for your children can mean the world to them, because you will show your unyielding support, no matter what. But, be sure to explain that as a family, you support each other, even if it sometimes means sacrificing something valuable. You will not do anyone good if you tell them that the world is cruel and unforgiving, try to turn your frown upside down, because everyone needs a loving and kind word from time to time.

Come together for game night

As silly as it might sound, but playing together with family is a good way to work on communication, and to find out what everyone has been doing lately. Make some nights more interesting by playing demanding Sudoku games which might be a brain teaser for some. The point is to have fun, which means that you should avoid games which will destroy and shred your family bond if you get too serious about it, yes we are looking at you Monopoly.

Spend some quality time together

Unless you know your kids and if you distance yourself, it will be hard to work on communication and establishing a good bond with them. Be sure to gather regularly, and to make even the most seamlessly unimportant gathering crucial. You are not strangers running into each other in your home, rather, you should be able to trust each other no matter what happens. After all, if there is no mutual trust and belief, it will be hard to make your home welcoming and warm.

Keeping up peace and order is something that the household has to do together and there is not ultimate solution to fix issues which will arise. It is a process and an experience you and your family have to go through, but, do not back away challenges, rather take it head on, and figure out how you can solve it together. Make time for having fun and spending quality time together, so that you can work on communication and ensuring a good relationship.

I strongly agree that in every household there must rules. Don't they like them? Off the go to live somewhere else, especially at a time when people won't leave from their parents homes till the age of 30 or more. Good stuff!
