6 Family Traditions You Can Start With Your Kids

Are you a tradition-loving parent?

Wondering how to celebrate everyday life, and not just the big moments?

Create some new family traditions.

In this article I’ll share how you can start traditions, based on ‘The Book of New Family Traditions,’ by Meg Cox.

The book shows that traditions aren’t just about celebrating big occasions like Christmas and Thanksgiving, but also about everyday life and the daily rituals that make life fun, meaningful, and rich!

Start new family traditions that can create lasting memories to celebrate the everyday with rituals that make life fun, meaningful, and rich.

Why Practice Family Traditions?

Family traditions are things that families do together. In a busy society where everyone is bombarded with all sorts of activities and distractions, traditions offer a sense of belonging and identity to every member of the family.

Children raised with family traditions—especially those who have watched their parents invent new ones—learn that they can respond to life in active, creative and extremely personal ways. They grow to be resilient, confident that they are loved, and knowing how to express love to others.

In The Book of New Family Traditions, Cox highlights several non-traditional, everyday opportunities to create new traditions with your family. I’ll share my favorites, below.
