Creating cornerstones for our happy family by ourselves

The values can be considered a kind of internal integrator of a human, concentrating all his needs, interests, ideals, attitudes and opinions around themselves. In such a way, the system of values in a human’s life takes the form of the inner core of his entire personality. Life values of a human are a foundation on which his whole life is based. They don’t arise in one day, being the result of our experience. One of the important aspects for family creation is the determination of your own values (or their inventory), and the most important point here is the comparative check of values between husband and wife. The understanding of how our values will be realized in everyday life, expressed in our doings and behavioral reactions, is needed so that our future children could adopt all this and learn to form their own values. Competent effective communication is one of the indicators, factors and building blocks on which the relationships between husband and wife are being based and developed, the children are being brought up and the family is being built.

Different experience, different families, different habits and expectations form our individual style of communication for each of us. And it is extremely important for the husband and wife exactly to form their own appropriate and effective way of communication between each other.

In relations, in family life the level of marrieds’ emotional intellect development is playing a very important role, often a determining one. In order to understand and feel each other, to love and enjoy the relations, it is important for the marrieds to develop in this direction together.

Marital relations are a point of self-realization in Judaism. This process is difficult; however, the difficulties arise not because of problems but thanks to the depth of understanding. That’s how it is in the family: the difficulties are an indicator of success.

In our work we use the whole range of active learning methods, including:

  • individual work of participants (work on tasks and tests)
  • work in small groups (discussions, speech preparation)
  • business and role-playing game situations (that are close to everyday work or, on the contrary, are distant from it)
  • coaching tools
  • modelling of situations (transferring gained skills into real life)
  • mini-presentations of participants (performances on the prepared themes or spontaneous)
  • business and role-playing game situations (that are close to everyday work or, on the contrary, are distant from it)
