Traditions Put Down Deep Roots

with Ron Deal | October 16, 2018

Family traditions can be simple: Friday movie and pizza night or an annual camping trip. But traditions have a profound impact: they create bonds, communicate values, and foster shared experiences and memories. Researches have even found that family rituals and traditions reduce anxiety and depression in teens, and have a protective effect on their well-being. In blended families, repeated fun activities and traditions help to form family bonds and define what it means to be part of this family.
