Today's family is very different from the family of 25 years ago. Two-career families are the norm. Single-parent families and those blended from different marriages are as common as the traditional family. Gender roles are changing. We are all crunched for time as we work longer hours and commute further. But the changing family doesn't have to mean the short-changed family. In How to Have a Happy Family, two authorities on relationships and family issues (who are happily married to each other) pool their years of wisdom and counselling experience to share with you their joyful mission of enriching the quality of your family life. According to the authors, Mort and Marjorie Shaevitz, every family can use more of two elements: Time and Communication... if only we had more of these, then our family relationships would become less stressful and more enjoyable. This program is designed to help you maximize family time and improve communications. You'll learn how to truly make your family a priority by taking control of your time, eliminating and limiting outside intrusions, and carving out special time for the people you love. And you'll learn how to use communication skills to build bridges instead of walls. But there is much more to happy family life. Mort and Marjorie also discuss:
Overcoming special challenges in the two-career family
Nurturing high self-esteem and persistence in children
Understanding why men and women feel differently about intimacy and sex
Practicing the Outcome Model for Successful Parenting
Sharing household tasks as a team
Setting reasonable limits for children and establishing disciplinary consequences
As you increase the number of positive interactions you have with your family and decrease the negative ones, you'll soon find that your family is enjoying one another's company more, and having more fun together.
