10/9 (Tue.) Family relationship and friendship (Host:miller)

文章miller » 週五 10月 05, 2018 4:24 pm

This is Miller, your host for the meeting on 10/9. This is my first time to be the host.
I always like the feeling to have meals with family or friends.
First topic is about having meals with family, and second topic is about how to maintain your friendships.
In modern society, it is rare that the family have meals together and chat with each other.
It only happened on Chinese New Year or important festivals.
The parents are busy with work and fail to care for their children.
Even though the parents squeeze time to have meals with family, they usually end up with watching TV or cellphone.
This phenomenon made people more and more alienated, even the children don't know how to interact with each other.
There are more and more people unknow how to maintain the friendships.
They usually give friends regards on Facebook but say nothing when they meet.
We have to do something to improve our family relationships and friendships for a better society.

having meals with family and friends is not the point. the point is the communication itself between them. that's what really matters, i would say. 8)
i might be a cynic and, a sceptic as well but, i'm definitely not a bad person!!
