Last Saturday, a pschyologist visited the Hohenwald Church of Christ, not to unearth Freudian conflicts, but to explain a longitudinal study over three decades which now has twenty-three thousand participants. The study was on what makes a good family.
The methodology was they asked people who thought they had a good family to send in information.
And then they analyzed for similiarities.
Top of the list of six was Feeling Appreciated. So my advice is to go out and tell your spouse and kids that you love them, and try to show this in little actions each and every day.
I'll try to get to the others later, but I will say it was a very good seminar indeed. And the Pizza Hut za' afterwards wasn't bad either.
