Do your family members share day-- to- day affairs with you?

I see some of the families in which the family members share even the smallest incidents that happened that day, with each other. If not with all, at least either with mother or sister, brother etc. My children do not tell me all. Only important things they share with me. How about your family members? What do you feel about it?

Hi there. My family get together for meetings not about our day to day affairs, but family land affairs, discussions on maintainance, profits and costs and so on, buildings that may need to be built for a family member, as well as other land related issues. These meetings are held almost once a month... But my husband and i discuss our own personal affairs and what we did during our day...

This is really good Nardz13. Not only we share our thoughts and that will contribute to the matter but also a bond develops between family members. Thanks for responding.

My mother and I have always had a close relationship, but since I am now older, we have the greatest bond I have ever seen between a mother and daughter. When I was living at home, we would sit all day and talk about the smallest of things. And now since I've moved away from home, we talk on the phone each day, and text eachother, and we still have so much to catch up on when I go to visit at weekends. It's really great knowing I can talk to my mother about anything, she is so supportive of everything I do, and in turn I try to support her and offer the best advice I can (even though she obviously has more life experience than me!)

Hi friend, I am also like your childrens. I never share any thing silly matters with family members. But share whatever may be with friends. But my small brother and my small sisters also share every thing with our mother. And most of the day are spending by saying these stories. I also like to here my sisters talks. I think it is very good to share all most all with our parents. Because it make our parents to make too friendship. Its also help our parents to realise us too much. If we share all with parents, if any problem come on us we get immediate solution from them, because they are more experienced than us. These all are only my opinions. Just sharing with you all. Thank you dear.......

That is what I too think. If they share things, we will help them where ever we can. More over we are doing so much to children. Are we not entitled to know what is happening in their lives?

My kids are still young. 3 and 5 to be exact but my daughter at 5 tells me everthing and then some. Which i hope continues. We are in a tight knit family. I talk to my mother in law daily. to tell her how the day went. what the kids are up to how i'm doing and to find the same about her. I also talk to my sister in law daily for the same reason. We share things with more extened family too. Aunts uncles cousins. That we always know whats going on with the others and can help each other when needed. so I hope my children carry on in this way

You are correct. It is not for gossip that we share, we will know what is happening in each other's life and can help if needed or take help too. Some times we will get some lessons too.

My husband and I talk about the most minute happenings in the day. Yes, my kids share as well when they come over. IT is so much fun listening to what they did all day or what is happening in their lives. When they were small, sitting at the supper table was our share time and we all told what had happened thru the day. Those were the good ole days. LOL

Nice to hear this. But my husband is a silent type. If it is must know matter only he will say. Where as I am a talkative person, wanting to share everything with near and dear ones. What to do?
