When I think of a good family life, I think of Deut. 6:4-7. A good family life results from two completely dedicated parents, who have put God at the center of their family unit – in everything. All decisions are made in the best spiritual interest of the family – when we will worship, what we will wear, what we will watch, what we will read, what we will eat and drink, whom we spend time with, etc. Also, I think honest, open, and respectful communication (this applies to the listener, as well as the one speaking) is vital to having close-knit family.
