Family RelationsFamily is an essential part of the society and it plays the most important role in everybody’s life. It means that the most important people in our lives are our family members. Family is represented by a close unit of parents and children living together. I believe that everyone wants to have a happy family and good relations with all its members. In my opinion, a happy family should have mutual interests, hopes and dreams to share. Other important issues are love, trust and respect. No family can exist without love. Happiness is also impossible without love. When people love each other, they can overcome all the obstacles. Unfortunately, modern couples often build their relations on some other values, such as money, social position, etc. They think that happiness will come itself and nobody has to make an effort. They are mistaken, as good family relations are impossible without mutual understanding and love. Children in the family also play an important role. To keep up ideal relations with parents they should be kind to them, trusting and understanding. They should share everyday joys and sorrows with their parents. Whenever, there is a difficult situation, parents are the first people to help them and find the way out. My family is not big. I live with my parents and my little sister. I think that we have ideal relations, as we never quarrel with each other. Instead, we always treat each other with respect and love. If there is a problem, we talk about it and try to find the best possible solution.
The family relationshipsThe family is very important as a unit in our society. Nothing else but family can
be an emotionalcenter of people’s life, can be a transmitter of culture and raising children. Every mother feels greataffection for her children and tries to bring them up in a proper way. Understanding between themembers of the family and consideration for others are very important in family relationship.Tenderness, warmheartedness and respect must always be present in the family to make it friendly.
A lot of activities help members of the family to be on friendly terms: discussing all
the family plans together, going on trips, hikes together, visiting museums, theaters, exhibitions and
exchanging opinions about them, sharing the same joys and sorrows. If you think of the others inthe family you show your love and attention in everyday life, you can hurt them if you are selfish,not sincere and rude. It is very important to visit relatives on holidays, on birthdays, onanniversaries and develop close relationship. We feel more affection for our relatives when we are parted from them. The proverb says Absence makes the heart grow fonder». When the family is friendly, everybody has the warmed feelings of returning home where dear relatives are waiting forthem. There are different opinions on how children should be treated if they disobey their parents, break the rules, do forbidden things,
don’t keep their words or promises.
Some people think thatparents should be patient, kind and understanding. The rules and children’s behaviors arediscussed in such families. But others believe that children ought always to obey the parents and ifthey won’t they should be punished. From my point of view, such principles won’t do a lot of good.Fear and punishment will lead to selfishness, cruelty and lies. But «love and kindness will save theworld». We are the family of two. I live with my mother. We don’t have such problems asmisunderstanding between the members of the family. I think that it is due to the age of my parentsand their character. My mother is 40 years old, she is layer. She is a kind, clever and responsiblewoman. My mother always ready to give me necessary information, moral support and a goodadvice. It is common knowledge that there is no place like a home. We are dedicated to our homes, we give them much love, care and enthusiasm. A man’s house is his castle. I like my home and Iwant to tell you more about it. I live in Kuprijanov st. in center of our city. We moved into this flatseveral years ago. Now it is a place where I feel it ease and enjoy every minute of my stay there.We have a washing-machine, a vacuum cleaner, a refrigerator, a freezer, hand-mixer, computerand other things which I consider to be quite necessary as they make our life easier and help tosolve a lot of problems in the shortest possible time. We have 2 rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.When you drop into our flat you come into a lobby, where you can take off your coat, shoes and hat. I’m very happy to have a room for myself, where I feel quite and comfortable. It is a placewhere I can relax, read a book and listen to music. There are yellow blinds and a writing table, asofa, a bookcase where my favorite books are situated. There are a lot of things in my room whichcan tell about myself, about my friends and relatives. You can find frames with photos of my parentsand best friends on the walls, little pictures. They remind me happy moments of my life and that iswhy are very dear for me. You may be surprised, but the most popular and favorite place with all ofus is the kitchen. Every Sunday my mother makes a cake and we gather together, discuss ourproblems and make plans for the next week. Our kitchen isn’t large and looks the usual modernkitchen you can see in many other homes. I can tell a lot about my home, but to make a long storyshort I can say, that speaking about my home, I don’t mean a flat as it is, I mean people, who are dear to me, who love me and are always waiting for me. That is why, wherever I
were I would always hurry home.
The family plays a very important role in everybody’s life. Labour achievements, mood and what is called happiness depend on family relations. When young people marry, they sometimes think that happiness in their marriage will be created by somebody else, not by themselves. They are mistaken. To create a happy marriage is their own duty. Both husband and wife must create their happiness together. A happy marriage does not mean that husband and wife must have similar characters but the ability to understand each other. It’s really very difficult to keep up a marriage without mutual understanding. When a family is happy, it means that all the members of the family trust each other, tell each other about their joys and sorrows. The children love, respect and obey their parents. Housework may take a great deal of your time. But if all the members of the family help each other, has his special duties, keeping house won’t be so difficult. So to create a happy family is a difficult problem, but everything depends on ourselves. Only when each member of the thinks about the happiness of the others the family will be happy. Clever and understanding parents are always ready to help and find the way out. We know there will still be a family to turn to for love, compassion and understanding, the family will remain in our soul forever.
