one family tradition that I would not break is having our meals together at the dining table - where we talk and laugh and sometimes debate.May 20, 2013 / 07:17 pm
@Mar 22, 2011 Guest - You know what? I heard a similar comment from a friend. Her daughter also said that about her suitor. Over the years of raising our sons and also looking back at my own growing up years, I have come to realize that the importance of traditions is the identity that it gives our family and its members. Traditions make us understand what we stand for as a family which consequently, enables us to understand our individual self as well. And most of the time, they are fun to do. So let's celebrate our family traditions!Mar 22, 2011 / 11:34 pm
My kids used to complain about some of our family traditions especially if they were in conflict with their individual schedules. Now that they are all grown up, they seem to value these traditions. My daughter once said about a guy she was going out with, "I like him but his family members are not close to each other, they don't seem to have traditions."Mar 22, 2011 / 12:40 am
@Guest May 20, 2013 - Congratulations! Sharing family meals regularly has proven to be the most effective bonding technique to our family and I'm sure to your family too. This is really the time we get to know them well, to share our day's highlights and low moments. Family meals is a tradition I wish for all! Thanks for sharing.Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00 am
