family traditions and customs

Fam­i­ly tra­di­tions are the norms and style of behav­ior inher­ent in the fam­i­ly, habits and atti­tudes, as well as tra­di­tions that are inher­it­ed. There are also fam­i­ly cus­toms — the estab­lished order of behav­ior in every­day life.

The role of family traditions in raising children

Fam­i­ly and fam­i­ly tra­di­tions are the basis of rais­ing chil­dren. After all, it is in the fam­i­ly that the child learns the first expe­ri­ence of inter­act­ing with peo­ple, com­pre­hends the ver­sa­til­i­ty of human rela­tions, devel­ops spir­i­tu­al­ly, moral­ly, men­tal­ly and phys­i­cal­ly. Each house has its own set of cer­tain rules and habits that are car­ried out auto­mat­i­cal­ly. Fam­i­ly tra­di­tions and cus­toms help to inter­act nor­mal­ly with soci­ety, make a close-knit fam­i­ly, strength­en fam­i­ly ties, improve mutu­al under­stand­ing and reduce the num­ber of quar­rels. In fam­i­ly cir­cles where tra­di­tions of fam­i­ly edu­ca­tion exist and are observed, chil­dren lis­ten to the opin­ion of their par­ents, and par­ents show atten­tion to the prob­lems of chil­dren and help them cope with them.

The main types of family traditions

  1. Fam­i­ly hol­i­days and tra­di­tions ded­i­cat­ed to them. For exam­ple, a birth­day, which often becomes the first sig­nif­i­cant event in a child’s life. Gifts, spe­cial prepa­ra­tions, fes­tive dish­es dis­tin­guish such a day from oth­ers and allow the birth­day man to feel the sig­nif­i­cance of the event, teach­es you to receive guests. This also includes the cel­e­bra­tion of nation­al hol­i­days, which unites peo­ple in the range of the coun­try, the world.
  2. Gen­er­al games with chil­dren. So par­ents set an exam­ple for the child, intro­duce them to var­i­ous activ­i­ties, teach him var­i­ous skills.
  3. The meet­ing of the whole fam­i­ly. For exam­ple, in order to sort things out, out­line fur­ther plans for a spe­cif­ic peri­od, dis­cuss the bud­get and expens­es of the fam­i­ly. This enables the child to have an idea about fam­i­ly events, to be respon­si­ble, to par­tic­i­pate in solv­ing fam­i­ly issues.
  4. Tra­di­tions of hos­pi­tal­i­ty, joint din­ners of all fam­i­ly mem­bers. Hos­pi­tal­i­ty is also con­sid­ered a nation­al tra­di­tion that unites fam­i­lies and strength­ens ties with friends.
  5. Cel­e­bra­tion of sig­nif­i­cant events in the fam­i­ly: anniver­saries, suc­cess­es and achieve­ments of the house­hold.
  6. Tra­di­tions of pun­ish­ment and encour­age­ment. This encour­ages the child to con­trol their actions. How­ev­er, the exces­sive sever­i­ty of the rules lim­it the free­dom of the child, over­load his psy­che. You should not intro­duce rules that make life dif­fi­cult.
  7. Bed­time sto­ries.
  8. Wish­es good night, good morn­ing, kiss good­night. Such rela­tion­ships are impor­tant even with an adult child. After all, from a lack of care and affec­tion, chil­dren grow up insen­si­tive and cal­lous.
  9. Trips, walks with the whole fam­i­ly, trips to the muse­um, the­ater — devel­op the spir­i­tu­al feel­ings of the child.
