Teamwork Makes a Dream Work

Standard

My husband and I have decided that we are going to start having family meetings at our house.  I’m hoping that it will open the lines of communication between us and the kids.  Plus, it might make life a little easier for us all. Below are a list of things that can possibly be accomplished during family meeting time:

  • address any concerns
  • allocate and monitor chores
  • ease sibling rivalry
  • recognition for jobs well done
  • promote communication skills
  • group brainstorming to solve problems (working together works!)
  • resolve family conflicts
  • provide children with “ownership” in the family
  • create a sense of family

In the next week or so (after doing a little research), I will be putting together the agenda for our first meeting that I hope to hold before school begins.  Any suggestions are welcome.
