    Group discussion On Family and Values.

    The play you are about to watch, introduces a typical family, with some issues to be solved. Are there

    things you consider need to be solved in your family?

    Read the texts below and discuss with your mates and teacher what a Value is and whether you agree

    *

    WHAT ARE VALUES?

    Values are a part of our experience that affects our behavior. They encompass our

    attitudes, the standards for our actions and our beliefs. Values are often learned

    from family, culture and people around us. In addition, values tell others what

    is important to us and guide our decision making. We use our resources-time,

    money and brain power on the things we value.

    CHARACTERISTICS OF POSITIVE VALUES WITHIN FAMILIES

    Many of family ideals, beliefs, behaviors or values are merely habits of thinking

    or behaving. Sometimes this is because we do not know any other way or becausewe have not stopped to think about the motives or reasons for the things we

    think, say or do. Identifying and communicating the values of the family can . . .

    Be helpful in making personal decisions.

    Become a guide for self-empowerment.

    Help manage time, energy and resources to the fullest.

    Help one to know oneself better.

    Help eliminate some of the confusions in life.

    Help formulate a desired system of values.

    Help one to act or behave in accordance with their values.

    Help one to better understand and respect others who have dierent values.

    Which are the values you consider most important

    as regards family?

    What about friendship?
