Family Values
Family Values: At Family Fun Shop we believe that a stronger world starts with stronger families, and that strong families are built upon strong family values. This page is a collection of articles and poetry about important aspects of family values.
Kindness: Every Day Fulfilled:The simplest kindness is the difference between a day fulfilled and a day wasted.
Family Affection: Have you Hugged your Family Today?: Affection lifts burdens from loved ones in difficult times, while warming hearts in every condition. Tokens of affection ease the wariness of time.
Listening to Your Children: It is important to show as much interest in what your children tell you as they have in telling you.
Commitment: As good as your word: A commitment is a pledge or promise to ourselves or to others…a promise that reveals whether we are as good as our word. 
Patience: How to be patient: It is ironic as the world continually quickens its pace that we are told to develop the ever-cherished virtue of patience.
Trust: Building Life's Treasures: In life there are times when we may find it difficult to trust anyone – even ourselves, but the most important consideration in finding someone to trust is being someone to trust.
Fairness: Survival of the Fairest: While it is true that many things that happen in the world do not seem fair, much about fairness in the world is dependent on who we are as individuals, and how we decide to live our lives.
Courage: Everyday Heroes: Though it is common to think of courage as something exceptionally rare and unusual, it is a quality that everyone can achieve when they are willing to stand firmly for that which they believe is right.
Responsibility: The Wires of Our Lives: Life has a way of reminding us about the responsibilities that we choose to ignore. Sometimes it is better to take responsibility for our little problems before they grow into big ones.
Passion: The Pathway of Dreams: Passion is the soul’s most unyielding devotion to fulfill in reality, the dream of its perceived destiny.
Change: A Constant Necessity: If there is one thing we can always count on to remain the same today as it was yesterday, it is that things will be different tomorrow.
Charity: Lifting Others Higher: As long as mankind exists on Earth, there will always be a need for selfless charity: the greatest of all virtues.
Potential: Shining a Light: Potential is what we are capable of attaining if we are able to discover the light that is hidden among the darkness.
Adversity: Perils of the Journey: Adversity is a painful, yet unavoidable portion of the entirety of our journey, and we must learn to recognize it for what it is, accept that we must navigate through it, and find within ourselves the hope and determination to press on beyond it.
Honesty: The Essence of Who We Are: It is our duty, in pursuit of personal integrity, and for the legitimacy of all human trust to adhere to honesty with the deepest devotion and sincerity of heart.
Being an Example: You must never forget, in good or bad, that you are always an example. You are unique and of value to others in ways of which you may not even know.
Caring: Courage to Care: It is caring that gives life meaning both to yourself and to your relationships with others, but the best thing you can ever do in life for yourself is to learn to care for others.
Respect: Everyone Deserves Respect: To say that one must earn respect is to assume from the beginning that there is something amiss in people and that they must shake off the aspersions that are cast upon them by others.
Talents: Talents are Treasures: Although some talents appear to come naturally, they must also be practiced and developed with commitment to achieve a fullness of their rewards.
Compassion: The Most Important Value: Compassion is the human part of humanity. It is the unexpected but desperately needed mercy that holds mankind together.
Compromise: Meeting Others Halfway: Compromise can often mean the difference between being correct and being together. We should never allow our compulsions for correctness to overshadow our civility and consideration for one another when there are valid points on every side.
Conscience: Our Truest Course: Conscience is the truest good of the soul—the beacon of morality that shines upon us in dark and stormy seas to guide us safely home.There is goodness in each of us—a desire to nurture what we believe to be right and to manifest our honor in our actions toward others.
Dreams: The Most Worthwhile Endeavors: Though the realization of a dream itself may seem to be the only measure of success, those who commit their souls to their dreams, and persevere through unspeakable challenges, discover that success is as much about how much one is willing to sacrifice for a dream, as it is about seeing it come true.
