Fortified Family: Developing Healthy Interdependence

Michele Howe

In Going It Alone  by Michele Howe and published by Hendrickson focuses on creating a spirit of teamwork in the home of the single mother and her children. Michele lists several significant ways to ‘Strengthen Your Families’ Identity.’

  • Design a chore list. Break down the jobs into daily, weekly, monthly, and occasional sections.
  • Instill the importance of working together like teammates.
  • Pray together over family issues.
  • Attend church and church functions as a family.
  • Be hospitable to the needy.
  • Encourage your children to develop their spiritual gifts.
  • Don’t be afraid to say no.
  • Have fun together.
  • Love unconditionally.

We discussed the importance of work for the child’s self-esteem as well as in preparation for the adult world.
