I find without effective communication and a commitment to nurture my family relationship, they may suffer with neglect, conflict, guilt, and other hurts. I can support my family by being a good listener, caring about their feelings, letting them know when I am available to offer support.It's something I am doing and want to do .Our relationship build us up , inturn makes us a better family unit and makes our hearts sing. :) love my family

There are many ways to support your family, physically meaning physically being there for them when they need u. Mentally and emotionally is when u are there to give them the advice they need in the time that they need them. Financially helping them in times when they need money. Spiritually helping them is when u pray for them and with them when they need the prayer. And etc.

Can you tell me more? Can you tell me why it is you feel your family need support? It sounds to me like you value your family very much to be asking such a question.

Try to care about them and make them happy as much as you can, always be there for them because this is the best thing a family member could ever do to their family

Listen to them. Really listen to their words, their emotions, their reactions. I find that listening to all that they are saying, in all they ways they are saying it, helps them feel more confident and gives me a better understanding of what is really going on with them.

Financially, there's no blanket answer. But one thing that helps is listening. Take the time to encourage plain talk, and just listen. Even if it results in a little venting about you. Hear it, and let it sink in before you respond.

It really depends what you mean by support. You can support someone by just being there for them and being someone they can talk to.

One of the best ways to support your family is to spend one-on-one time with them, getting to know them, and helping them solve the problems that they face on a daily basis.

Encouraging them. Letting them know they are doing a great job, and offering to help in any area you are capable. Babysitting, cleaning, giving rides somewhere. Etc

Make sure you are always willing to go the extra mile. Go to the grocery store and buy common goods, make dinner, help on household projects. Make sure to praise them for their successes and say how proud you are of the things they do. Ask them with an engaged attitude about current events in their lives. Provide a trustworthy outlet for those needing guidance times of difficulty or personal issues.

You can support your family in many ways. Financially offer to pay a bill or buy small things like milk, food or toilet paper. Emotionally you can check in with your family members on how they are doing. House chores, just go and clean the kitchen or bathroom. Leave motivational quotes around the house where people can see them. There are many things you can do to feel you are supporting your family. Have fun with it-be creative!
