Keeping the Family Unity

One major problem of every Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) is how to keep their family united. An OFW can be separated from the family for years and keeping the family, the way they were in thoughts, in words and in deeds is impossible. Parents that are working abroad and left their children on their own are committing a big risk.

Filipinos are well-known to have close family ties. The family is our first priority and every member always think what’s good for the family, what benefits the family and what’s bad to the family. We keep in mind and in our heart, our family wherever they maybe.

Children of overseas workers when left alone can go astray. They make friends out there and meet people with bad influence. They dropped school and get involved with drugs and other anti-social problems. What a waste! Money cannot guarantee family unity. In fact it causes family separation and failures..

Keeping your family united while you are away can be difficult. However, if you are entitled of an annual leave, make sure to make it up with your family. Plan a trip that everyone would enjoy. Have a 3 to 5 days trip to a tourist destination and make sure everyone joins. If possible, make everyday a family bonding day. Have a picnic in the park, take the children to the zoo or botanical garden, or walk with them to school. Prepare their food, watch a movie, show or concert together, play tennis, badminton, etc with your children. You can take them to the dentist, attend school meetings for parents and talk to their teachers. At home, sleep together in one room and on a trip, book a family room not single or 2 rooms. Having quality time means doing things with your children. They missed your presence, your parental guidance and most of all your camaraderie.You’ll see, they’ll look forward to your homecoming next year and the following year. For yourself, family unity is your hard-earned reward.
