Family Life 1st is a group of citizens building a community where family life is an honored and celebrated priority. The democratic theory underlying this work is that families can only be a seedbed for current and future citizens if they achieve a balance between internal bonds and external activities. This balance has become gravely out of wack for many families of all social classes, and retrieving family life requires a public, grass roots movement generated and sustained by families themselves.
Within this vision of strong, balanced families flourishing in a vibrant democratic community, the goal of the Family Life 1st Seal of Approval is to reorient the relationship between families and the groups that schedule outside activities of family members. These groups include sports, religious, and fine arts programs, and other activities. The Seal of Approval was developed to counteract the erosion of family time and overly-competitive world. The Seal will be awarded to groups and organizations with a demonstrated commitment to supporting family life while providing enriching opportunities for individuals. Here are the six criteria for the Seal of Approval followed by a statement about families' own responsibilities to the activity programs they sign up for.
