(MENAFN- Tribal News Network) Hudaibia Iftikhar
PESHAWAR: Mixed families are extensions of nuclear families where parents, grandparents, children, uncles and aunts live under one roof across generations. The common family system has undoubtedly benefited families with household needs even though some of its members are unemployed, sick and unable to earn a living.
I live in a common family system, I spend a lot of time sitting in a living room and tend to eat together, and I am used to sharing things with each other. We have a common relationship of life and respect in our family. We are a total of 15 family members including my uncle, aunt, their five daughters and my own parents and siblings. Being the youngest of my siblings, I used to do less household chores and spend a lot of time blogging and other social activities, although I was sometimes distracted and didn’t couldn’t fully concentrate on my job due to a ton of outcrying at home.
We often sacrifice our needs for other family members as the responsibility for all family members rests on my father’s shoulders as my uncle is unable to earn for his children. My father loves my uncle’s children more than we do because he doesn’t want them to feel inferior. He also expects the same from my brother to treat them like his own sisters and not let them realize that they don’t have their own brother. In today’s world where everyone has their own problems and wants the love and affection of parents, in such a situation, it is not easy to sacrifice happiness for others.
Living in a common family means adapting with all the uncles, aunts and cousins, it does not only mean a group of people living together, but it means that these people are related by blood and choose to live in one. home for many reasons. . Although every coin has two sides, while the common family setup has benefited us, its drawbacks on the other side cannot be ignored.
The importance of a common family system can only be realized when facing problems and seeking help, then the first silent steps will be members of your family. family. When we grow up together, learn together, fight and make up, carry on with their lives, but ultimately when you need someone you know your parents and family will be there for you.
In a common family, the value system becomes a central element. Elders follow certain principles and children can naturally inherit the value system. Children learn the lessons of ethics and mortality under the guidance of the elders and they ensure that family values ââare not compromised.
One of the benefits of living in a shared family is that children not only receive love and affection from their parents, but other family members support them in all aspects of life as well.
As we observe the drawbacks of the joint family system, we often find that the most common thing we compromise when living in a joint family system is privacy. You can’t make your decisions, but everyone feels it necessary to interfere in your personal affairs. Even a small decision has to be made and get a green signal from every member of the family and this is one of the reasons why single girls think many times before marriage about living in a common family because women face to many limitations and there is less freedom for them while living in a common family. A very small mistake can invite insensitive taunts and ridicule.
Living together in a common family is a difficult task for modern women. It is not easy to give up for others, to take care of loved ones, to cook food for the whole family and to work as servants all day long, but it is also true that happiness is incomplete without them. members of your family, if you take care of your family today, there will be many people behind you during your difficult time tomorrow.
