Practical Principle: Family Support

Family life provides high levels of love and support.

Guiding Growths

  • Tell family members you love them regularly and show them with hugs, or write “warm fuzzies;” notes of affection highlighting strengths, accomplishments and/or why you’re proud of them.
  • Spend at least 15 minutes a day of quality time together as a family. Rotate through family members and assign someone to be the “Family Captain” each day.
