When I lived with only my partner, I was feeling it was just a "couple". But I really felt it became a "family" when we had kids. In Japan, usually fathers work so hard for a long time everyday, so it's hard for them to take a time to spend with their kids. But the situation's been changing little by little. I think if kids can be content and honest with their family and stay calm in it, it would be the base of their life. In my opinion, raising family like this is one of the ideal families.

I think having a child doesn't guarantee the happiness of a family. Because there will be more challenge coming out,such as child's education problem, the different
opinions of teaching child, etc.

I am living alone now. I really feel alone and when i used to live with my parents i feel that i will get support in every step of my life. But now i am alone even i can do everything for me but i feel there is none with me.That means in my opinion it is good to be with family so that we can share even happiness and sorrow of our life and can solve the problem easily. Its not easy to be of course we have to be with family you will get a great romance and sacrifice in life which makes me happy .Hope that if we try to be in family and share everything it will make happy to you all as well.

When it comes to the success of keeping a good family, we often request people should pay more attention to family members each other. I think the harmony of family is built upon the sincere respect.
Without respect, you have no way to get along with anyone. Take me for example, sometimes I take parents' cares for granted because I think we are close enough to get rid of certain manners. If I don't respect what they've done to me, they may have bad feelings that could hurt them. I think it's a basic rule to maintain love in a family.

I think family should always come first.Becasuse if they had not bring up us we would not be now as we are.So we owe them.

I think family is the most necessary thing in our life. We don't have only one family with our husbands or wives and children, we also have family with our parents, sisters, brothers, cosins, etc. We can have friends, acquaintace but no one can take care of us as our family. In fact, there are many people have troubles with their family because they didn't appreciate its true worth. And after that,they will regret about it. So, I think we should appreciate everything we have, join our family, listen to each other, spend just a little time in them, sometimes, a petty question can be a great care! Just show your family that you care them.

According to me, having a happy family is one of the most neccessary things for people to be successfull in their life. Nevertheless, the modern life has lots of stuffs to do and everyone will face with. For example, the more responsible we are to the family, the harder we work to support our family. And, as the life expenses are now growing day by day because of several social factors such as inflation, it is difficult for not only our own life and our family as well. Moreover, we all should garantee the family good, all children well educated. When we have kids, we need time to take care of them. In that circumstance, the woman will stop her job to feed the infant and the father is going to do more jobs to have enough money to support the family. In conclusion, it will be successful if we have a good and happy family but we should face to lots of stuffs to support the family.

I am still young. But to me, family is always the most important thing in my life. And because of its importance , we try our best to work , earn money and make our parents happier. All family's members take care together. Although the young people work hard all time, we usually spend time to go shopping, cook , have dinner or just talk at the weekend. So, I think that the key to keep the happiness in our family is to share everything in life and respect the family value.

I have afamily. i am a mother.
i have 3 children who are everything in my life.I always try
to spend agood time with them . their father is always busy but he tries to spend his day off with them.

Tzu-Ling said...

I agree with that family is the fundamental unit of our society and culture. Most people spend most life time with their parents as they were little; therefore, family does play a role in our thinking, acting, even habits and interests. To have a healthy society, we need to have a healthy family. In my opinion, an ideal family must have love and good communication. With love, parents have patience to raise childs. With love, parents are willing to take all reponsibilities to educate their kids. With good communication, family members can solve conflicts in opinion and repect multiple thoughts.
As for family and work, I think parents have the responsibility to teach their childs in order to decrease problems in the society. Althoough money is not everything, it is something which is vital for the daily life. Some parents claim themselves too busy to take care of childs and think that making more money can make their family happier. It's not true. what a child needs is not tons of expensive toys but the priceless love from parents.

Family means a lot for me. As I'm a just married girl staying abroad with my husband away from mine as well his family. I miss my parents and younger brother and sister very much as they are dear to me. I always miss the the time spent with them.

Marisol said...

In my opinion family is the base of everyone. If you want to do something is better if you have the support of your family because they have more experience and they can suggest you more ways to solve something.
If a family has children doesn´t meaning that the children are the keys of the success but they can help in some ways. The life of the family can change when they have children because the life becomes to be more challenge when you have more resposabilities like children.
In my opinion the key to be a succes person is the family, if you have a good base at home, you can do whatever you want.

As all of you, i agree that family is very important to develop our life!
I live in Vietnam where many adults still live with their parents. This is a good cultural custom. But sometimes, other hands,it is not good for developing of adult. Many man & woman depend strongly on their parent, they can't do anything without parents.

hello to all. I am Iranian but living in Canada. In Iran family is a holy word and most of people live in family. We have party with our grandmother, grandfather, aunt and uncle a lot.
I have one brother. I love my mother, father and brother very much. When I was in Iran, I lived with them.
But here in Canada most of people when become 18 years old even smaller, apart from their family.

Jason said...

Work or family? That seems not exist together at same time. The main concern of men, if men spend too much time on work, then they will lose the families. I think that is completely true.
At traditional society, the role of husband is to earn money and a solemn father. Under the influence, eveyone, especially men think those are the regulations of husban or father. Otherwise, men devote all their energies and time to their jobs. Businessmen may keep eyes on the computers for check the financial markets and 24-hours stock market. If the projects are urgent, men must spend the whole holiday on them. How can they have time on their families?
Sometime, men feel stress on the work and problems of relationship, they maybe bad-temper. Even they fight with wives or children. They will open breaches with their families.

I think family is very important when everyone in the family loves each other, if love doesn´t exist in the family it is a big problem for each member of the family

Juan David said...

I Think A Family Is A Group Of People You Shared With The Most Of Your Time, And They Can Or Must To Influence Significatly In Your Life And Decicions, You Dont Need To Have Bloody Relations With This People To Called Them FAMILY, Family Is Just The Person That Loves You, Thast Is Happy When You Are, That Suffer When Youre Suffering And Feel The Must To Support To You When Youre Not Right, So You Can Live With One Person Older Than You, Of Different Race Or However Difference That Could Have But If That Person Take Care Of You And Appreciate Who You Are Too Much To Leave Their Own Things For You You Can Call Him FAMILY

I think one doesn't have to choose work or family both aspect are interwooven when you live with someboby,what one must do it's show you are very fond of the people you live with, one does know we work for them, one work for their wellfare but one have to show sometimes one also can spent time with them. ( a kiss, a hug, a chat, a walk, a gift) One's the owner of the words one have to use them.

i think that family is important when it come to support but sometimes they can get too much into other family members bussines and they feel that you should act the same way they do, and sometimes the don´t respect your ideas, but over all, they are your family and most of the time they will support whatever you do or i hope thats thats what they do.

For me... my family is the most important thing in the whole word, they make me feel loved!!! there isn't a better feeling than when your children call you 'mom' for the first time, or when they really need you, or when they make a picasso's drawing to you... everything has its time but sometimes you can lose your real life because you can't see was going on around you...

Mariana1709 said...

I belive that family it´s a very important thing in everybodys life even for good or bad . the family we have, the things that we live with them makes stonger or weakest.
and most of the times we´re stonger because most of the times families suck and put us in pain a lot, so what doesn´t kill make y stronger

tutavo said...

The family is something that is familiar for me. I mean, my dog could be my hamily or my dog and my cat, and if I have a plant, well, my dog, my cat and my plant. Family is something that we need to create, the best thing is that you can choose the members of your family.

lizzi said...

well, i agree that family is fundamental in a culture because the society is what we reflect of our family, of our personality and as people. The family is part of the realization like human beings, is really necessary that people share part of their lives and try to get a better society, because the family is a really good reason to fight for what we want and who doesn't want a better world for his own family?

well, I remenber my family one time in the week cuz i don´t stay in my family home but i love them, the family is so important wheter you grow without family there are more posibilities that you will be a person without knows about the live and you´re not gonna take experience .

The best day is today, enjoy it said...

I think the family is a good support for us, and your family are the only people that help you in any moment and I think that the good comunication makes succesful to the family, because is really important to know what are thinking the other people. In my opinion we have to spend more time with our families, if you are fine with your family, the other things canbe better.

visual_chick said...

from my point of view, the family should be an important base for everything, but it depends of each culture, when people have different ideologies about life and diverse priorities. There are many diferent minds in the world, but although some people don´t give family the importance that it deserves, they´re alwys there to help you.
The varied of the thoughts made the world that it is.

johanna said...

Hello, I think the family is the most important of the life but its depends the kind of family, all the families are so differents, so, I prefer my own family because I put the rules and I can decide How we're going to life to be happy and sucesful.

Anonymous said...

I love my mother and my two sisters but I don´t think that family is the most important thing to be succesful.
there are people who find their hapiness in a family, but there´s a lot who don´t, like me for example.
I find hapiness in the arts for example, and in the people I get to know in that field.Besides, this planet is over-populated and I don´t think that having a family will improve that situation.

I´m not saying that having a family is a bad thing, I just think that need people who don´t want to have one.

joedugo said...

My family is the most important thing in my life, they give me support and respect, everybody have a different relathionship with his family, for that reason I understand if there is somebody who say the family is not the most important thing. but, well...

I think that if you spend all your life with your family, you wouldn`t be able to live without them after that, because every person needs to be in contact with other people who help him/her, talk with him/her... So I think that family is probably the biggest treasure we have in our lifes.

Sincerely yours,

I love when my family celebrates the birthdays because we get together in my grandparent's house an we share a delicious cake. Also we talk and have a good time. I think a birthday is a date very important for everybody and it's the space to say our relatives and friends that they're special for us.

Russell said...

In Taiwan, the average working hour is really long, so we don't have enough time to accompany family.
I think family relationship is truly more important than money.

Oleg said...

I think the best family is where all members are friends! It means that they can talk with one another about everything... Parents have to be friendly & understanding for there kids. It seems to me every child in family must possess own room, it's necessarily ! It can prevent quarrels between kids, parents... Mum and dad have to live modernly and understand that kid's hobbies are changing with time!

Anonymous said...

J think that the parents must spend more time for the family. It is wrong to work a log time everyday and to neglect the family and child. Often, they spend their time watching tv or with baby-sitter because the partents are tired.

I quite agree that family is the key to success. A happy family is the base of one person's achievement. The family is the fundamental unit of the society. If we want to built a harmonious society, we should construct a stable and joined family first. Love is the rarest resouces in the world. where can we raise love? Maybe you have gotten the anwser: in our home. When a baby comes to the world, it first receives the love from its parents and when it grows to adult, she or he passes the love down to its kids. However, why are there less and less love but more and more crimes in our society? Because love is gradually decreasing in our home. Anger and quarrel are replacing generosity and thoughtfulness. Imagin if kids don't love their parents, how can they love their friends and colleagues? School educations teach us too many skills to survive in the society but quite little about moral. In other words, with the rapid development of science and technology, moral is becoming vaguer and vaguer in our mind. In the end, let's pay more attention to our family members and concern less with repute and treasure!

lostheaven said...

keys to success for a family?understanding and love!families vary in their values and beliefs,the more rational and great these values are, the more successful family becomes.having children is like taking a huge responsibility on the other hand it makes the connections stronger and stronger and brings joy and porpuse to life of their parents.what kind of challenges people face in keeping family toghether?well there is a lot of reasons why families dont stay stable,its usually financial problems,misunderstanding between parents ,parents not being faithful and sometimes the children being ambitious!
job comes first?no,forsure ,family is prior to job!but it still depends on the family,sometimes u have no choice but to sacrifice something valuable

Keys to success
I think family is the most important thing in our life, usualy old people think that more children, happier you will be.

Maybe that is not correct. doesn't matter how many children you have, how much money do you have. It's about how much you love each other.

Family is the key to success, why?
cause they are the one who will be on your side for the rest of your life, they are your supporting ally, helping friends.

so keep them close to you.
that is the key to a success family

I think to have a big family is not necesary. It was in the past year where my grandmother and grandfather used to have a lot children.

We should have our family, but if you can have two or three, I think is better than three...

In my family, my mother is closest to my first sister and my father is closest to another sister but it doesn't annoy me. I'm always pleased to spend time with them. I think, the key of a good family relationship is spending time together. It made me pleased when I was a child and show me how to make a family when I got now my own one.

In traditional Taiwanese society, all the family members had to live together as possible. This kind of family consisted of several generations. Males worked outside to support the family, and females did the domestic chores and took care of their kids and old family memebers. However the make up and function of family has changed a lot in recent decades, because of the rapid change of whole society. The traditional large family breaks down gradually. Small families, consisted of only parents and childrens, become more and more popular, especially in modern cities. The number of DINK-double income no kids-is also increasing now.

Hello, I'm Anna!

I agree family is very important part of our society, so we should value and safe it. I mean we should help and understad our people, have more time with them, because it can be late to change anything...

Well...I think everybody should realise that family is one of the most important thing in our life, so everybody should build happy family. And it doesn't matter if its big or small, the main thing is happyness, mutual understanding and love!And everybody can built this kind of family, it just depends on our wish!

I always feel family is necessary for me although sometimes I have words with my parents and my young brother.

Now I am living alone to go to the university, so I miss having dinner together and talking about everything directly. :(
