When you think of a happy family, a couple different varying images may come to mind. For one, you might be inclined to think about the stereotypical family that coincides with “the American dream.” A father and a mother, a boy and a girl, a dog.
It is the image of the family that is often depicted in discussions of Americana and classic life in the United States. After all, if you ever visited the Carousel of Progress when visiting Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, you were probably exposed to a pretty traditional model of the perfect, quaint American family.
On the surface, this may seem like the best way to attain a happy family, as affirmed by science, but this is, of course, not the case. In fact, there are near infinite amounts of ways to craft the happiest possible family and there is no singular “right way” to do so.
Additionally, people might think that the scientifically proven way to achieve a happy family is to experience as much leisure and fun as possible. If you go on vacations or play games, you might think you have the key to a happy family.
But recent research that was conducted seems to indicate that the key to a happy family is to spend quality time together, no matter what you do with one another.
