The family is the most integral part of the society. It is the foundation in which our society is based upon. As such, the development and strength of the family is crucial to social development. And yet, as the years went by, the bond of the family weakens. People became more independently self-driven that some of us only remember our family during occasions. Take for example the time we spend on our family. Most families are busy on weekdays and sometimes even on weekends doing our personal stuff, work, study, etc. But let us not forget to allot time for our family, if only on breakfast or dinner. Make time to update each other about our day, our problems, our personal plans. These are also perfect times to plan vacations and weekend activities. Or you can watch the TV together after dinner. It will allow bonding time and at the same time guide our children on things they watch and seen on TV. Let us rebuild and strengthen our families. It is our solution to develop better citizens and individuals which will in turn help in the betterment of our society. Make everyday a family day.

Hi, astreadido. I have enjoyed reading your discussion. Having a family day is a very wonderful thing to always make time for. No matter how busy my family and I are, we always make time for each other very often. We don't ignore, each other. We always try to spend quality time together whenever possible.

Hi, I wish everyday is a family day for me,but it seem impossible as during weekdays,my husband has to go work and my son has to attend his halfday nursery class. So only during weekend or public holiday,then we will have chance to spent our family times together. Sometimes, we will just laze at home,play together and have fun at home. It is also our bonding moments on weekend whereby my husband will have more time to spent together with our son.
