Family is at the core of everything we do. Our mission is to offer peace of mind to families with features that are easy to use and easy to act upon. In today’s world, anything that can make connecting with family easier is important to creating strong family bonds.
The foundation for a strong family has always been shared family values. As the world changes family values evolve to match it.
Family values for the modern world
Having open communication in a family means that everyone is able to express their thoughts, needs, and concerns. Open and honest communication helps everyone feel equal and understood. Whether communicating in person or online it is important to stay connected in today’s busy world.
GeoZilla helps you stay connected to your family members as you progress along your day. You can communicate throughout the day within the private messaging console to provide encouragement and support. Check out our previous post on using online communication to foster a healthy parent child relationship.
- Experiences over items
We are lucky enough to live in a world of abundance and many of us have much more than we could ever truly need. Perhaps that is why many families are emphasizing experiences over items. Building memories to carry with us is much more important than getting the new hottest toy when it comes to building lasting bonds.
Respect helps promote a sense of trust and wellbeing that can lead to better communication and understanding. It is important to teach children not only respect for others, but self-respect so they believe in themselves.
Taking responsibility for ourselves and our actions is one of the most important things we can learn in life. It is also an important part of building a strong family unit. Starting at a young age you can teach responsibility with little tasks such as picking up their own toys and brushing teeth. As children get older they might take responsibility for getting themselves to school or other activities.
Using the GeoZilla app and tracker means you can give children the chance to take responsibility while still keeping an eye on their location and giving yourself the peace of mind that all is well.
Generosity is a gift to others and to ourselves. When we are generous it can boost self confidence and make someone else’s day a little brighter. This is a value that truly can be done as a family through volunteerism and creating a positive home.
A family is really a team and teaching teamwork at a young age not only makes the family unit stronger, but helps set children up for success in other areas of life. Whether it is playing sports or taking on a big project, working together as a family helps build teamwork and other values such as respect, responsibility, and communication.
- Celebrate successes and learn from failures
In today’s world both our successes and our failures can live online forever. Therefore, it is even more important than ever to teach children that failures are just as important as successes. Without missteps we can’t build towards accomplishments.
Creating a set of family values for the whole family to take to heart has always been important and in today’s busy world it is a great way to bring families together. We are honored to be a part of building stronger bonds with better communication and staying connected no matter what is going on.
