Families often find themselves stretched very thin, trying to just make it through the day. It's all too easy to fall out of harmony, with each family member trudging through as best they can, forgetting how much easier, more beautiful (and more fun) life would be if thy lived as a team.

- Trust each other
- Are ok with conflict
- Commit to decisions and actions
- Hold each other accountable
- Maintain their focus
