O.k., I've been watching this group closely. Desperately hoping to see some clue as to what's the SECRET TO A HAPPY HOME is ? :-)

I got plenty of questions for this disfunctional family I got runnin' around here! But I ain't gonna be the first to ask

Bob.

I never said that I know the secret to a Happy Home. That is what this group is about - how to achieve a happy home. I don't think there is "a secret" to a happy home, or else everyone would do that one thing and be happy. Life is much more complex and less boring than that. Your post made me laugh. If there is a single thing that makes a happy home, it is laughter. Please share your ideas or questions for a happy home.

For every post with an idea of how to maintain a happy home, I will do the same. For example, the next time you come home, ask your family “how was your day?” You might be surprised by the answers and post them here!!

A home without alcohol use, drug use, and profanity will produce a happy home. Parents who set a good example for their children by always being truthful, considerate to others, respect the laws and people of authority, listening to their children, and being an involved parent are ingredients to a happy home.

All true Isabella. When it comes down to a happy home, I would also include "love". A loved child is generally a happy child. If a child does not love him or herself, a child cannot be happy.

The secret to a happy home............. put God first in your lives but understand there is no perfect home. having a happy home takes work and of course sometimes things happen that are out of our control. ex: divorce, money problems etc. All we can do is all work together in a family to try and keep it running smooth but in a perfect world we all know how that goes.

From my point of view most households are disfunctional heh to some degree.

I agree

Disfunction is what allows us to realize when thing are going right. Just try to build on that.

Well.. I suppose it's hard to really argue with that. Certainly more fun things to be doing out there than watchin' the idiot box or playin' on the computer.

However, watch the idiot box with friends.. or post on website with 'friends' and it makes for a better experience.

I would agree with what you said. This world has computers and tvs and
can be a good thing.

I would like to know something. Is your line from the Far Side ?

Up stairs the band was playin' and the singer was singin' somethin' about going home.. LOL well the guy singin' something about going home, would probably be "Southside Johnny" of Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes singing "I don't wanna go home" a song written by Bruce Springsteen.. the line "upstairs the band was playin...." is from a Bruce Springsteen song called "Incident On 57th Street"

Now you know the 'rest of the story'

Maybe the answer is to NOT get a dysfunctional family in the first place.

Well, I suppose plenty of them don't start out that way. And obviously some are more dysfunctional than others

Nobody consciously chooses a dysfunctional family. But a person may choose to live in a dysfunctional family and become part of that dysfunction. Our choices are often affected by our parents choices, and how we were raised. Therefore it is very important that parents be good role models for our children.
