Jacuzzi Hot Tubs of Portland serving Beaverton and Hillsdale participates in Family Reunion Month.
“A family reunion can be a lot of fun, and they are great ways to rekindle estranged relationships between members of the family that have grown apart from distance or attitudes,” said Dave Doornink the company’s director of marketing.
Balancing relationships during a family reunion can be challenging, but with these 3 tips for a great family reunion, it is possible to get through the event and discover a new closeness with long-lost loved ones.
Encourage Intergenerational Interactions – Get grandparents, great uncles and aunts to communicate easier with the youngest members of the family with books and board games. The youngest members of the family may not have had any contact in person with some of the more extended members of the group. In some cases they may have talked to grandparents or other relatives on the phone, but it is more difficult for children to reconcile the voice on the phone with a real person.
Family reunions are especially important in helping young children develop a sense of history and family relationships. Have an area set up with a table that contains a large selection of family oriented games and books that are geared toward the younger members of the family for older members to read to the babies. Have a time set aside where everyone can take a few minutes to retell a favorite family story or event, thereby passing on important or enjoyable family history to younger members.
Accept Individual Differences – One of the things that tend to separate family members are old disagreements. These types of arguments have a habit of festering over time. When hosting a family reunion, accept the fact that those people are still going to have the same opinions they always had. Don’t focus on the differences. Instead, find better ways to connect and enjoy time together in a neutral manner.
If there are known feuds between family members, do as much as possible to keep those people apart, or act as a peacemaker that points discussions in a new direction if they become heated. If a meltdown does occur between family members, jump in quickly and refocus the emotions on positive activities that are fun. When needed, have a helper who will lend a hand in separating two family members who are involved in a heated discussion, and draw their attention to other people.
Use a Beaverton Hot Tub Service to Make Sure Your Backyard Spa is Ready to Go – Many people use a backyard hot tub to create a party atmosphere that everyone can congregate around. Even stand-off relatives will want to be a part of the fun when it means slipping into the luxurious waters of a hot tub.
To be sure that the hot tub is in good shape, hire a professional hot tub service company. Most hot tub dealers offer this type of service and are experts in cleaning the tub itself and balancing and sanitizing the water.
