Would you believe it if we tell you that families as big as 20 people live under the same roof? It's true! While things do get crazy sometimes, it's a one-of-a-kind experience to live in one.
Joint families teach you a lot about life and the world outside.
Here are 7 things to learn from a joint family:
- To value what matters: Joint families teach you to prioritize your relationships— you value your loved ones over social media and the online world.
- To compromise: When you watch other members adjust for your happiness, you in turn learn to compromise for others.
- Discipline: With a bigger family, certain things must be done according to routine—eg: eating together at a fixed time. Thus, you naturally become disciplined.
- To share: With cousins of the same age and interests, sharing things becomes second nature —from your new dress to a new gadget.
- To be happy in other's happiness: In joint families, one person's achievements are considered as a victory for the entire family.
- That no work is small: In joint families, you learn to work together and happily perform all sorts of tasks—big or small.
- To enjoy festivals: In joint families, festivals are a big deal. It's about playing games, having fun, and genuinely enjoying each other's company.
Moreover, you get to enjoy birthday parties almost every month, have exciting family weekends, and learn to reuse and recycle almost everything under the universe!
