Building strong family bonds often takes a backseat in our busy lives. We could find ourselves disconnected from our extended family due to our everyday shenanigans and digital distractions.

However, for a peaceful and happy life, these ties must be rekindled and strengthened from time to time.

Here are 8 important suggestions that could help you improve your relationship with your extended family; with a nod to the supportive role of Kintree - a digital haven for family connections.

1. Initiate Regular Communication

Any solid relationship must have open communication as its foundation. It is important to make time for in-person or online family catch-ups.

To make this communication hassle-free, explore Kintree's chat function that maintains the flow of conversation and the development of your relationships. No matter how modest, share your everyday struggles and victories with others; what matters is that you do it consistently.

2. Celebrate Milestones and Special Occasions

Celebrating special occasions & achievements together with your extended family creates a sense of bonding.

Let's make an effort to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other significant life events of your extended family members. To easily organize and manage these celebrations, use Kintree's event management feature. Using this application, you can express your caring by sending kind words and thoughtful gifts.

3. Share Family History and Stories

Knowing the stories of your family history can help you bond better with your extended family. A sense of pride and belonging can be developed by understanding your family's history. Share ancestor tales, family customs, and values while using Kintree to record and save this priceless knowledge. Make a digital family album so that everyone may revisit and treasure these stories.

4. Collaborate on Family Projects

Having frequent get-together functions and meeting your extended family on occasion is a way to connect with your family & take part in family initiatives.

Participate in joint family initiatives, such as building a Kintree family tree online. Encourage each member of the family to add their branches and leaves to the tree. In addition to strengthening family ties, this combined effort will leave a significant legacy for the coming generations.

The chat tool on Kintree offers a secure setting for people to express their ideas, ask for guidance, and get support.
