Michael J.Fox said, “Family is not an important thing, it’s everything”
I relate to this quote as my family means the world to me. There is no other way to keep a family united than by having regular family gatherings. These gatherings can occur yearly, in every family member’s birthday or any special holiday like Christmas that is about to come up.
Family gatherings are important because they enable family communication, establish family traditions, and keep members connected with each other. They are also a great way to reconnect with all family members that you haven’t seen for a while especially distant cousins or younger family members. They also help relatives develop empathy for people with learning and attention issues.
Beyond that, family gatherings are important for my children as they show them that they are growing up in a safe environment and they know that these people will always be there for them. Bonding with relatives is also another advantage of these gatherings. After all there are no greater friends than family and they are the most likely relationships to last for generations. Through these gatherings, kids can have more role models and those Gatherings will definitely be the first social behavior’s lessons.
