6 Secrets to a Happy Family

The 6 Secrets:

* Define your core family values (when you know what really matters it reduces conflict and builds a stronger family identity)

* Lean on each other (having a support system creates self-confidence, Family is a team--kids contribute too)

* Learn to bounce back (focus on the positive, continue rituals, "Anyone can do well when times are good", going through a tough period can make you more connected, Resiliency can be learned)

* Breathe (connect in relaxed ways)

* Be respectful (in the way you speak & listen, acknowledge & appreciate)

* Spiritually connected (...families seem to do better, happiness is valuing experiences more than possesions)
