THE Tongaat Child and Family Welfare Society hosted a fun and entertainment programme recently.

Families from the society’s caseload were invited to commemorate Family Month which is normally celebrated annually in May. ?

The purpose of the programme was to emphasise the importance of families since the family system is the single most important influence in a child’s life and from their first moments of life, children depend on their parents and family to protect them and provide for their needs. Parents and family form a child’s first experience at forming relationships and this structures how they deal with and manage future relationships in life.

The day was both fun and informative.

Social work manager Jo Moodley said: “The programme proved to be both educational and fun for the family members and served to teach them that the family unit is important and that the behaviour of each member both affects and contributes to this bond that they share.

“In teaching them this, families will be able to take into consideration their personal behaviour and consider how their actions will influence and affect the rest of the family, thus resulting in strengthened family units and hopefully a reduction in the conflict and social issues that are prevalent today.”
