Perfect Family Day – July 18, 2023

Perfect Family Day is celebrated annually on July 18. We believe that a perfect family exists. Hopefully, you all reading this feel grateful for the family you have. Even the perfect families must have their ups and downs. A perfect family is not the one without problems, but it’s the one that can handle the problems together, based on love and respect. Love, respect, trust, and understanding seem to be some of the essential qualities in building and maintaining a perfect family. Without those qualities, it’s hardly imaginable. Does your family have those qualities?

History of Perfect Family Day

The definition of a perfect family may differ from one family to another. And that’s not a problem. We believe that a perfect family exists because it can be built. It can rise on the foundation of love, respect, trust, and understanding. Whether it be a nuclear family, extended family, or single-parent family, it can be perfect as long as every member knows the foundation. You cannot expect to have understanding children, for example, if you don’t teach and show them how to be understanding. That’s why parents play an important role in building a perfect family.

Parenting encourages and supports the child’s development emotionally, physically, socially, and intellectually, so good parenting is needed to establish a perfect family. Parents were once a child, so there is a possibility that the way they were raised as a child can affect the way they raise their children. There are various styles of parenting, and the styles with high chances to result in a perfect family include slow parenting, positive parenting, nurturant parenting, and dolphin parenting. Parents hold the key to building a perfect family.

Through slow parenting, you allow your children to explore the world at their own pace, while with positive parenting, you incorporate organized activities to foster your children’s talents. The nurturing parenting style helps offer development opportunities for your children and their temperaments, while the dolphin parenting style can maintain balance in your children’s lives — authoritative but not authoritarian. So, the ability to establish a perfect family depends on how effectively you as parents master and apply your good parenting skills.
