I may have posted this article before, but I just ran across it again and since Christmas is the perfect time to consider such things, I’m going to take the risk of sharing it again.
Family traditions (whatever they may be) have so many benefits! They provide a source of identity, strengthen your family bonds, offer comfort and security, teach values, add rhythm to your family life, connect generations, create lasting memories and pass on your cultural and religious heritage – all things that will make your family stronger and your kids better able to stand up to cultural nonsense and able to connect with your family culture.
There are three articles in this series and all are well worth your time!
- Creating Positive Family Culture: The Importance of Establishing Family Traditions (This is the article I’m referencing in this post.)
- Fathering with Intentionality: The Importance of Family Culture
- 60+ Family Tradition Ideas (Lots of creative stuff here!)
