FAMILY MEETINGS

Purpose: To strengthen loving connections, solve problems together, and create a more peaceful family.

- Gather together once every week or so in a place where you can easily bond.

- Set groundrules:

- Each person gets a chance to speak.

- Listen without interrupting

- Keep an open mind.

- Allow for equal voices regardless of age (within reason).

- Create Guidelines for a Peaceful Family together. Have each member sign them.

- Post your guidelines and revisit them on a regular basis.

- Use your meetings to plan family activities too.

- Affirm each other with hugs and kinds words at the end of each meeting.

- Make it fun!
