Resource Info

Our Family Values activity is a fantastic family bonding activity, designed to engage parents, caregivers and children in the process of selecting and embracing the values that guide their family. This can help to build positive relationships and healthy conflict resolution.

About this resource:

This activity promotes a sense of togetherness and allows everyone to contribute to the shared values that shape their family's identity. Understanding and embracing family values not only strengthens family bonds but also supports children's mental health and overall wellbeing.


• Involving Children in Decision-Making: The Family Values activity encourages children to actively participate in the selection of family values. By involving them in the process, children feel a sense of ownership and connection to the values that define their family.
• Learning about Different Types of Values: The activity provides an opportunity for children to learn about the various types of values that guide individuals and societies. Through discussions and exploration, children gain insights into values such as honesty, respect, kindness, empathy, responsibility, and more.
• Mental Health and Wellbeing: Values play a crucial role in shaping behaviour and decision-making, which are fundamental to mental health and wellbeing. By discussing and embracing family values, children learn how values contribute to their personal growth and overall happiness.
• Displaying Family Values: After selecting the five most important values, the activity encourages displaying them prominently in your family home. This visual representation serves as a constant reminder of the shared values that guide your family's actions and interactions.

This activity promotes meaningful discussions, strengthens family bonds, and nurtures children's moral development and mental wellbeing. By involving children in the process of selecting family values, they develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their family, and their role in society.
