Family- togetherness helps heal the many challenges modern families face today. Families that play together, stay together, May 13, has quite thoughtfully explored the elements required to have happy families. I really liked that the author, Janice Rodrigues, included some tips and guidelines to help maintain a good work- life balance, which is directly related to being a good parent. Cultivating good eating habits by doing things like shopping together for groceries, and also spending time together on family holidays and banishing work from the home, are all great tips. Just because we live in a busy and stressful time is no excuse to compromise on family health and happiness. Let’s rethink how we spend our time with our loved ones to ensure a bright future ahead.
