These days one hears the bitter cry of infidelity of spouses in high and powerful places, as well as, in humble families. How much pain, hurt, untold damages, lost of confidence, fear, separation, divorce and destruction that this causes to the family and mostly children, cannot be measured. One cannot underestimate the importance the family has on the home, the community, school, church, nation, and the world as a whole.. The family unit is priceless and every effort should be made to keep it powerful and vibrant in order for it to make the diserable effect it should make on all around us..

Firstly, in order for the family to serve its real purpose, there has to be good physical, spiritual, and emotonal health of its members. There has to be healthy family life style habits, including nutrition, work, exercise, and rest. The spiritual wellness will be visible in our concern for the needs and welfare of its members. The members would be praying together, attending religious activities and be there for one another in difficult times and be supportive when there are challenges to be faced. This helps to build a strong family.

Priority must be given to the total commitment of husband, wife and children to the family. This togetherness, loyalty ,and devotion give the feeling of belonging to the group no matter what happens or how long time lasts. One should continue to be a member.. They would be there for them in their mountain and valley experiences. It means giving one's all to their family. At the same time what makes a strong family is the chance that is given to each member to grow and develop his own personality, self- esteem and all the God given potential.

Each person would have to deny self interest and spend reasonable quantity and quality time wiith their family. How many times some people have given endless hours to business, work, friends and only a limited few minutes to their family. Why not get involved in some of the home activities, everyone assisting here and there? One cannot put value to the time well spent with family and what this does to the building of a strong family.

Marriage is a divine institution, but all the practical aspects of the union are played out here on earth. There should be sincere intimacy between husband and wife. The care and training of the children should be a collective effort. The responsibility of the husband is to be priest and main breadwinner of the family. Love and loving relationship must permeate the home in order to build a strong family. Kindness, patient, faith and helpfulness would characterize the members of the family. No chance is to be given to laziness, derogatory remarks and secretive actions.

The family members have to value each other, praise and encourage one another. Show appreciation for things well done and always congratulate each other for any good accomplishment. Rewards are to be given for any outstanding achievement. To have a strong family, one should be alone with them either on vacation or somewhere, where they can privately chat with each other, praising each other for good qualities ,clever decisions that were made. This reduces stress.Remember always not to dwell on past negative experiences, but always give each other time to make decision for themselves. To be too controlling creates conflict which sometimes end with verbal and physical abuse. If these good qualities are practised we shall have great families from which others can model.
