What a fantastic time we all had at the Tet Fair on Saturday! If you are new to the country, this may be your first time experiencing all the festivities. Tet is the annual Vietnamese New Year celebration and a time for Vietnamese families around Vietnam to get together and spend time together. Tet is seen as a chance for a fresh start. Debts are settled, old grievances are forgiven, and houses are cleaned from top to bottom. This all sets the stage for attracting as much luck and good fortune as possible in the upcoming year.

After speaking to several Vietnamese families in school, I can see that it really is a time for all the family to meet up together. It helps to create strong bonds, love, connections and relationships among all the family members. This quality time with your family really does help to instill a sense of belonging and security, teaches family values, fills your children with confidence and supports you with dealing with any challenges that you may face.

The family where your child grows up has a big influence on how he or she deals with relationships, copes with situations, and learns about living life. According to studies, healthy families make family time for accepting differences, talking and listening, sharing chores and decision making, showing affection and encouragement, keeping in touch, and making time for each other.

Tet is a good opportunity for Vietnamese families to not only spend time together but to pay tribute to their ancestors and to learn more about their family traditions and the culture of their home villages or towns. It is a good occasion for family reunions across Vietnam.

Did you know that young people who remember being praised, hugged, or kissed are more likely to do better at school than those who don’t have this experience?  This is such an easy thing to do but often forgotten in our busy lives and with the invention of phones and technology.

Harleena Singh’s research shows that when parents involve themselves in the family, their children:

Get superior grades and test scores.

Graduate from high school at higher rates.

Are most likely to go on to higher education.

Have more positive attitudes and behave better.

So over this Tet holiday why not put away those phones and find time to sit and read a book with your children. Talk to them about what they have been learning at school, share meals together, and learn about what is happening in each other’s lives.

We look forward to hearing about your family experiences when you return to school after the holiday.
