I think everyone should prioritize their family.

Putting family first is highly important emotionally. It can make the difference between being distant "people" who live together and sometimes say hi or being family members who love each other and share found memories and good times with one another.

I think the first priority should be our family, but we can not also leave our responsibility of our work.

I think people should put there family a head of there work. Now days some people work so much & don't spend enough time with there families. I know this one family that owns there own bussiness & doesn't spend enough time with there kid. There kid doesn't know what its like to be a kid cuze she doesn't spend enough time with the family.

My family is at the top of my priority list. That's my reason for working too hard.

We work because we need to for the financial security of our family We work because we want to give our children the best education we could offer them We work because we have to earn to live Otherwise I would be happier if i don't have to work at all But because of the hard times, both my husband and me have to work And we're all doing this for our family because they are the one that matters most. So family first.

Family should be the first the day you decided to have one. Work is a means to an end; to earn a living to raise your family

ofcourse it comes family first!! No matter how n where u works, but if u cant give time to your family, its all waste!! If your family atmosphere is sound u can do quality work n same time can enjoy ur work, but if family is not at all happy just boz of u, u wont b able to work properly. Ultimately...u'll b loosing from both ends!! So why family first!!

Well I work for my family so I have to put work first. My family is very important but if I do not work then they will not have anything but stress. Work has to come first to a point though, if something happens in my family and they need me my work has to wait.

family should always comes first i think that's the reason why you go to work because of your family. you wanted to go to work so that you can provide everything for your family.

my family always come first. Then i agian now that i am working from home, this gives me even more flexiability in juggling work and family, no i am able to do both, so i on't have to use vacation time to go see my son do things, now i just make up the time after my son goes to bed.

it would definitely be my family. i work to be able to provide for the family & career fulfillment is only secondary to me. they are my inspiration why i have to continuesly struggle all the trials in this challenging world. i cannot imagine my life without them. they make my life worth living & fulfilling.

I have always dreamed of having my own family in the future. Definitely, family comes first above everything else.
