The family remains at the core of our communities and family values remain at the core of our families. Family values help serve as guides to how the family will move. Family values inform our decisions as to what to do and what not to do; they tell us when to say yes, or no, and help us really understand why we mean it. When we are clear about your family values, and our actions are aligned, it makes all the hard work worth the effort. Family values are empowering and provide the compass many of us need in order to navigate in the world. Understanding our family values can help us recognize a conflict between the values we hold and the values of other people, organizations, or society, and we can exercise choice about how to respond. Let’s keep our families strong and become clear about what we value.
