Teaching Family Loyalty (FREE Character Planner)

Do you long for a family that prays, works, plays together and stays together? Family loyalty is easy to achieve when your children are younger, but what about when they grow up?

What happens when your sweet children who always want to be with you become teenagers? How do you encourage them to stay close and connected to your family? There are so many things going on that pull everyone in different directions. Family time can easily go to the wayside and be missed so quickly.

Family loyalty is one of those essential traits that begins and straightens as a child ages. When your kids begin to be social outside of the home, in church, sports and work friends start to become a priority in their lives. Having friends typically takes a stronger presence and need over the family as your children enter the teen years.

What can you do to teach them to stay committed and faithful to your family?

Loyalty is faithfulness to family and to the commitments, duties, and obligations in our lives. We can teach this character trait by modeling it on our own families. So many important character traits begin right inside your home.

Here are some ways to do this:

  • Create some family traditions that your children will get used to doing and look forward to on a regular basis. Do you take the same type of family vacation each year, or attend a certain sporting or local event? This will be something your kids will get used to doing and look forward to continuing as they are older.
  • Stick to a set family dinner or family game or movie night at least once a week on a set day. Pick one day a week where everyone can commit to work their schedules around needing to be home for that specific set day.
  • Encourage your children to support and encourage each of their siblings. This can be done during weekly get togethers. Help them to build strong relationships with each other so they always have a built in friend to turn to.
