Setting The Example

Just like many areas of parenting, building teamwork in the family has to be shown by example.  Children seem to learn best by watching a principle lived out.  Do they see us work with our spouse as a team, a united front or can they divide us? Jump in to help anytime you can. Look for ways to serve each other, your children and others outside the family. We have to live out being “others centered” in order to instill this in our children.  Being others centered rather then self centered is essential to building any team.  Make sure you are taking the time to live out what it means to be a team in front of your children.

Serve Each Other

A great way to continue to meld a family together is to not only serve others outside the home, but to create an environment of service inside the home.  How well do we take care of each other?  This is a great thing to make sure we are applauding because it is not in our nature to inherently serve others, especially our siblings.  Check out day two of our weeklong series on service by clicking here, for more ideas on how to serve each other in the home.

Serve Others As a Family

One of the ways to cement the family together as a team is to take the time to serve others together.  There are many ways to do this from taking a mission trip together as a family to serving a day at a local charity or ministry.  For more ideas on how to do this, check out our series on serving by clicking here.

Why Build A Family Team?

It is essential for the parent to focus on building a team as a family rather then just a group of individuals who live together.  There are many reasons for this.  First, functioning with in a team is a great life skill which helps a child in many arenas, sports, roommates, jobs, as well as marriage.  Secondly, teaching each child to function within the group makes family run more smoothly.  It changes the focus from everyone out to meet their own needs to working together and serving each other.

When you spend your lives emphasizing “individuality” and something changes concerning a child’s ability to get attention from his or her significant family member, you might start noticing erratic behavior.  Almost everything we do today emphasizes individuality. For example, we have toys that are geared toward the individual child, rather then family toys.  It is our job as a parent to begin to train our child out of self-centeredness and towards working as a team.
