Families are the first little communities and societies that we engage in. Now although we don’t get to choose the family members we get, most times our family members are the closest relationships that we have. They have no problems pointing out our flaws and faults and will almost always lambaste you if you screw up. But behind your back, they ensure that you are protected and taken care of.
The ones that are there for you will ridicule you to your face but will defend you wholeheartedly behind your back.
Here are 11 heartwarming stories overheard by Brightside about real family values.
1. In this particular family, they have a doorbell code that signifies emergencies. Whether it be being chased by a rabid dog or really having to go to the bathroom, one family created a rule where the bell needs to be continuously rung in order to signify an emergency.
2. A family created a shopping tradition where every month they would go out to a mall and splurge. But when one of the shoppers found their whole family sitting at a restaurant and eating (while waiting for them to finish shopping,) they promptly ended that tradition.
3. A father would always go to his daughter’s parent-teacher school conference. But one year he returned home disappointed because nothing was said about his daughter. Many questions later, the family found out that the father had attended the wrong classroom.
4. A mother in a family with four sons was always given the responsibility of making pancakes every week.
