  2. Yeah. I agree that small disagreements are a normal part of family life. Because it is impossible for people to be exactly the same in any way, it is normal for everyone to have some different opinions and suggestions. We can argue and reach a consensus, which can promote family harmony.

    As such music is not an important part of our culture, yet we have several kinds of music, Folk, Classic, Semi classic, ( Ghazal and Geet ) Filmi, Qawwali, and pop music. I like Semi classic music and during my exercise, I turn on my music channel and start doing my workout. I believe that music is the food of the soul.

    I entirely endorse Blake’s sayings that small disagreements are the routine part of family life. the big reason for being a happy family is to understand, bear and respect each other views, Democracy should start from home for moving forward. At dinnertime, I and my family discuss and think about domestic issues and many other concerns as well.

  7. Greetings Maestro Sersea
    Yes, I think that all families argue a little bit in a daily basic for differents circunstances and it is something normal. To avoid disagreements I prefer talk about any kind of stuff that bother me in placer to discuss, being honest and clear help to avoid to be misunderstand.
    Thank you so much
