They are supposed to be the foundation of so many good things…but how many of us really feel like that? Is your family any fun to be around?
HERE IS ONE IMAGE OF FAMILY
Most of the time at home is spent separately. Everybody is plugged into their own thing, avoiding each other with games, phones, activities, and videos. When they are together, the kids feel out of control, and everyone is resentful and waiting for the inevitable fight to happen. Parents yell, feel stressed out and wish they could do it differently, but are too overwhelmed to rethink the way they do their lives.
HERE IS ANOTHER VIEW
Everyone comes and goes at times, but enjoys their time together. They look forward to talking, laughing, playing games, watching movies, and eating together. They feel as much at rest with each other as they do alone. They can have a dart gun war with only minor skirmishes. Other families like to be around them and they get invited to lots of barbecues!
WOULD YOU BELIEVE THIS IS THE SAME FAMILY?
It doesn’t have to take a miracle to see changes like this. Think of what it’s like when you drive your car. You can look at the gas or oil gauge and know if things are OK. There are even lights that tell you if your tires are inflated properly. But there are NO lights to tell you your wheels are about to fall off! If you’re in the vehicle, you can’t know that until it’s too late! A family counselor is like having someone outside the car to help you see what you otherwise can’t.
