Family First

by Dr. Phil

In this book, Dr. Phil explains the five factors for a phenomenal family (great alliteration, right?). To do this you need to create a nurturing and accepting Family system; promote rhythm in your family life; establish meaningful rituals and traditions; be active in your communication; and learn how to manage crisis. I found this book to be helpful and, at least, reassuring about my desires to do simple things like eat dinner at the dining room table instead of in front of the tv and scheduling family time, making it a priority. Simple rituals like reading a story to your child every night before bed becomes an integral part of the glue that keeps the family together and ingrains wonderful memories for years to come.

A great read!
