Our head psychologist, Mary Magalotti and the Life Resolutions psychologists want to support and provide you with the knowledge to build a happy family. Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti encourage you to seek help if you are experiencing trouble building a happy family dynamic.

Take the time every day to build a happy family

Family life is very busy, everyone has things going on but spending time together should become a priority. To build a strong connection, families need to spend quality time together. If you are spending a great deal of your time rushing from doing one thing and then another, it is important to slow down and enjoy time with your family. This is showing yourself and your family that they are a priority.

Focus on the little things

Many families feel the pressure to make grand and big memories together. It is important to remember that the most cherished memories end up being the little things. It can be precious to focus on happiest memories which can be the little moments.

Do chores together as a family

Build a great sense of contribution and connection through doing household chores together. Working and talking together while cleaning the house or washing the car creates a sense of achievement and connection. It also helps children and family members feel valued for making a valuable contribution to the family environment.
