Why do we need our family?

          Having a family is a gift that should be treasured and should be given an importance. First of all what is family? Why do we need our family? What are their roles in our life that influences us? What does a family really mean at all? What will happen if they fail to do their part in strengthening their family relationship?

         Family is a group of people, living together or in close contact, taking care of one another and providing guidance for their dependent members. As Filipino family we are described being basically nuclear but functionally extended. This means that most families consist of the parents and their children, but there is recognition and respect for the ties between the nuclear family and the whole network of relatives from both sides of the family (Patterson 1995). Eventually our family is important on the way God had given them to us, to love and care for us. We need a family to become a better person who knows how to be discipline in every ways. Our family was the ones who teach us to learn the things we need to face our future live full of battle in reality. In a family, the place where they dwell is called “Home” (Dorothy Rogers). Family played an important role in human development, especially on the children within the family. The parent should do their responsibilities to their child/children properly. Every action the parents will do maybe imitated by their children. Parents were the person who guides, love and supports their children as a dependent members of the family.

        Family stands an important role in the society, in which it serves as link between the individual and larger society (Leopando, 1999). The parents were the first person who will be showing the good examples to their children. Parents should do their obligation and responsibilities to strengthen and made their family a perfect family. Family is very important because you can easily get opened- up with them because they will make sure one will get the comfort they give. Family is important because even though the world falls down on you they are the only people who can comfort and would really love you the most. We should value our family because they are the only unique God given to us. We should consider how to values each and every one family members within a family. If a family would fail to do their responsibilities there is a tendency that a good relationship may shift directly to bad. That’s why we should love our parents, siblings and ourselves in considering how we can strengthen one’s relationship. Having a happy family is one of the envious things in this world. Complete and happy family would simply mean that a relationship where all good and they keep on strengthen it.

      We should all remember that family is a gift from God. We were all lucky to have a good family. Try strengthening your love on your family and loving one another to stay a good and forever relationship and we should give importance to our family by showing through acts or obeying through words. We should value and treasure our family because in the end they will be our greatest best friend whenever we needed them. “ the family that prays together stays together” (Family Rosary crusade) and remember to ask guidance to our GOD almighty.
