Thinking positively shows that there is a mutual respect between two people. Another example is the interaction between the parent and their children. Many parents are against the idea of their son or daughter befriending a person of different sex. This can be at time very annoying to the child. The parents must think of it in a positive manner. If they know that they can trust their child enough and that the latter will not commit any mistake that will make either the child or the parent regret the problem of negative thinking will not arise at all. If instead the parent has positive thinking of his son or daughter, the latter will never try to deceive the parent. These two vivid examples show you how bring along love and peace in a family. As you can see, lack of trust in a family destroys its peace and there will never be peace in the family. So trust in a family is a very important factor and this will allow have national unity in the family. All relation is based on trust.
