Most couples seek help and counselling quite late when things get terrible. Everyone wants a great family, but not everyone pays enough attention to things that create efficiency and keep every family member content and fulfilled. Family is like a garden; it needs constant attention and care. And like a garden, it needs a soundcheck, good spring cleaning, good nourishing, and new plantations from time to time. Wouldn’t it be great if every family had a tradition from time to time to evaluate how things are going to prevent future difficulties, dramas or even separation? I recommend having a deep discussion with your partner about six areas of your couple/family life at least once a year. Use this simple test as an invitation for evaluation and good deep talk. Accept it as a tool for understanding, acceptance, gratitude, improvement, and growth.
