Who is it that you spend a lot of time and are close with? It is family. That means family is precious to you. However, because of busy daily life, more and more people can¡¯t spend much time with their families. May is ¡®Family month¡¯, so we conducted a survey of 354 students about family closeness.

The first question was ¡°How many times do you have meals with all family members?¡±. 159 students (44.9%) answered ¡®zero¡¯, 153 students (43.2%) answered ¡®one time¡¯, 36 students (10.2%) answered ¡®two times¡¯ and only 6 students (1.7%) answered ¡®three times¡¯. Most of the students show that they don¡¯t usually eat meals with family.

The second question was ¡°How many hours do you talk with family?¡±. Among 354 students, 144 students (40.7%) answered ¡®under 30 minutes¡¯, 102 students (28.8%) answered ¡®30 minutes to 1 hour¡¯, 54 students (15.3%) answered ¡®1 to 2 hours¡¯, 24 students (6.8%) answered ¡®more than 2 hours¡¯ and 30 students (8.5%) answered higher. More than half of students talk with family under 1 hour, and this time seems too short.

The third question was ¡°How many times do you go on a family-trip?¡±. Among 354 students, 78 students (22%) answered ¡®zero¡¯, 108 students (30.5%) answered ¡®one time¡¯, 81 students (22.9%) answered ¡®two times¡¯ and 87 students (24.6%) answered ¡®more than 3 times¡¯. More than half of students show that they don¡¯t go on family-trips or only go once.

The last question was ¡°What do you want to do most with your family?¡±. ¡®Trip¡¯ was chosen by 117 students (33.1%), the largest group. 93 students (26.3%) chose ¡®eat meals¡¯, 90 students (25.4%) chose ¡®talk¡¯, 45 students chose ¡®exercise and common hobbies¡¯.

These survey results show that most students can¡¯t spend enough time with family. One of the students said ¡°As I get older, because of busy daily life, the time that I can spend with family is decreasing, and I can¡¯t see my family often. There¡¯s no solution to this problem and I¡¯m so regretful.¡± Many students want to spend lots of time with family but they don¡¯t have suitable conditions. May has lots of holidays. How about spending time with family instead of just resting alone?
