  • All members should have a schedule which is predictable, atleast to some extent.
  • There should be a definite time period of the day when all family members come together.
  • During the period when all family members are together, everybody should avoid using mobile phones, internet or watching T.V.
  • Everybody should be vocal about their problems, but with intent to solve the problem and not to insult, show down or argue with other family members.
  • Listen & respect other members’ opinion, even if you may not agree with it.
  • Promote a sense of ‘belongingness’.
  • Every individual member’s space should be respected by all other family members. Everybody should try & pursue his/her hobbies etc.
