As a rule, family traditions are important in the life of each family and each family member. The maintenance of family traditions and conveying family history from one member to another is exactly what makes the family the solid unit, whose members feel close relations and unity. In this regard, I will tell you about the experience of my own family.
About this subject, I can refer to the experience of my family and my personal experience. My family has its own traditions which we observe and which are extremely important for us. For instance, if a family member is in trouble, we always support each other. The entire family unites its forces to help the family member in trouble. This mutual support is very important for our family members, but we do not consider that mutual support as something unusual. In contract, we take the mutual support of family members for granted. Even when we are apart and have not seen each other for years, we will definitely help each other just because we are the family.
Each family member learns to respect our family history since early childhood. We learn to respect the values of our family and its traditions. In the course of education of each individual family member, he or she learns basic family values, while the family history helps him or her to understand how those traditions and values were shaped and why he or she should respect them. For instance, as I learned the history of my family in the genealogy, I accustomed to take financial difficulties easy as provisional problems because I am certain that my family will help me as well as I will help my family and altogether we will stumble through the hardest time.
In fact, our family history and values make us feel being members of our unique but small community. Such as achievements of my ancestors make me proud that I am a member of my family and I want to make my children and grandchildren be proud of me. The family history, traditions and family values, all of these things help people to feel being members of the small community – their family.
In conclusion, the family tradition is the cornerstone of a family that can not be replaced. The family is a small but highly influential community, which people can never ignore.
