2. You are going read the post in Sherri Kruger’s blog about family values at http://www.zenfamilyhabits.net. Read the first passage where the author defines family value. Express your point of view. Think how you could define what family values are to you.
How do you define family values? In our home family values are rules or ideals that, as a family, we agree to live by and stay true to. The list of essential family values would be a mile long no doubt and the top 10 lists for each family would be as unique as the one that came up with it.
Having strong well defined family values helps solidify the foundation for a strong, tight knit family. When cultivated long enough this closeness provides a soft place to fall when life doesn’t go according to plan. Strong and consistent family values are important in building trust and confidence in each family member.
Read paragraphs 1-4 of the text for general understanding.
