Family Meetings

Family meetings can be a very important part of the agenda that each member of your family is part of. People of all ages can benefit from family meetings. Family meetings are a wonderful way to enjoy communicating with each other. This is also a great way to teach children that they are a valued part of the home and that their opinion is valued. In addition to this, it is a great way to teach team work and the importance of accountability. Here, you will discover many useful ways to implement the use of family meetings in your home.

1) When you decide to implement the use of family meetings, it is important that you delegate a time, place, and day for your family meeting. It should be understood by each member of the family that this time, place, and date should never be scheduled over with another event. This time is an important time for each member of the family and attendance should be kept at mandatory. 2) When you have a family meeting, it is extremely important that you create it in such a way that all members of the family get an opportunity to talk about things that they would like to discuss with other members of the family. You may want to have a list posted somewhere in order to allow family members to write down things that they would like to cover at the family meeting. It is vital that each family member, young and old, be able to communicate that which they wish at the family meeting. 3) Once the family meeting has started, it is important that there is some sort of way for each person to have the floor without other people interrupting. You may even want to implement some sort of time frame that a person is allowed to speak in order to control the length of the family meeting. 4) It is important that each member of the family be instructed to show respect and listen to each other family member that speaks at the family meeting. It should be understood that each member may not interest all members of the family with that in which they discuss, but that everyone should be considerate. 5) When you have a family meeting, you may wish to implement the use of activities and games that can bond the family. You may choose to have special refreshments and beverages that everyone can enjoy at a family meeting. 6) When having a family meeting, you should ensure that it is kept on a positive note so that no one feels bad. You may choose to encourage the rule that for everything that is said that is negative, there should be two positive things added to the conversation at hand. 7) Each time that you have a family meeting, you should ensure that you let different members of the family lead the meeting. This will teach the concept of being a leader and taking responsibility.
