    How do you find the way to spend family time with people you have nothing in common with? I mean it's not that I don't love them, but if I had the choice between watching bad tv shows smashed on the couch and being on the computer I'd do later. I tend to be introverted and we don't get along very well anyway. Also is going out 2-3 times a week too much for a 17 yr old (only in the summer mind you)?

    It's all about communication. If you communicate less, the less chances of family members minding other members.

    I do agree with this, so you really need to give some time to join them and talk to them.

    The more you talk, the better.
    One has to know what the other think.

    On weekend I spend full time with my family. For my career I can't avoid them because they are part of my life. Everyone should give time for happy family.

    I can't spend much time with my family because I'm so far with them, but If I have a free day I go with them.

    Same thing here. Since I got into college me and my brothers and parents just bond together whenever there are family occasions and thats just it. I think this is because they all do have their own family.

    It is enjoyable to me spending time with my family. When I am with my niece I rejoice with her. Really very happy to spend time with my family.

    I try to spend my time with family and for my job too. It's a bit hard to balance my time due to we stay in different place.

    On my day off, Sat & Sun, we usually find time to meet and do some activities each other.

    Take them to some fun place specially park or play ground . Spend a whole day with them a week. It will give them confidence to share things with you and they will love you. Family is most important relationship in the world.

    According to me, spending time with family is very important. I usually dedicate my weekdays with my parents. The best part is to have breakfast, lunch and dinner with my parents. We should not forget that because of our parents we are able to see this beautiful world. We should always be thankful to our parents.

    I spend more time with my family when I don't have a work. I cook for them, care to them, and express my to them.

    Hi
    The best way to win hearts is to spend quality time together this not only improves relationships but also helps in developing a healthy life style. I have to agree with the fact that today we all spent more time in watching tv, using electronic devices like smartphones, playing games we are just nothing but have become slaves to machines.
    If we spend more time with loved ones and those who care we will feel much better :)

    Spending time with family is an important experience but that doesnt mean it will always be a pleasant one. it help us remember our roots and feel loved. I think if you have very different interests then you can try knowing more about them. everyone like talking about what they like, so i am sure they will open up to you. also you can work on finding something that both of you like doing and you will no longer see family time as a burden

    It's depend on yourself, because it is worth more to discuss daily routine family problems, and new ways of better living with family members than watching tv or reading book in spare time at home. If you think there much communication gap then need to remove that gap by discussing with them about their works, jobs, office and try to bring something at home that is beneficial for all, taking reviews of everyone.
