Family Meeting Agreement

In the New York Times Bestseller The Secrets of Happy Families, Bruce Felier incorporated a weekly „retrospective and retrospective“ into his family gatherings that included these questions: What is your shared family planning? Excursions, concerts, sporting events? What are the tasks next week? It`s a time to assign fair tasks to each family member, sync calendars, and set goals for the future. Notrepositivity Kit is a collection of printable posters, games, activities and painting designs designed to help children develop and maintain a positive attitude. These fun and engaging activities help children train their brains, be more positive, build confidence and resilience, and build family connections. While the perfect family reunion does not exist, we can learn from it and grow. Katherine Foldes, author of the Family Meeting Handbook, reminds us that „in family gatherings as in life, we do not expect perfection; We all make mistakes. We are all teachers and we are all learners. Consensus decision-making takes into account the most important needs and wishes of all. It enables effective communication, problem solving, anger and conflict management. Decisions should be something that all family members can live with emotionally, financially, physically and mentally. Set a date and time when all family members can be there. An older family member living in an institution may also be invited.

Invite everyone, but don`t demand that they be present. The consequence, if they are not present, is that their opinions are absent when the family makes decisions that can influence them. Because family gatherings give everyone a voice, they boost children`s self-esteem. Children are treated as valued family members whose ideas are heard and taken into account. If your family doesn`t seem to find the time when everyone can get together and talk, adapt the steps in this card. Consider alternatives. Perhaps you could get in touch individually with your spouse and children about how they are doing, what decisions to make alone, and which ones need to be made together. Stopping regularly to discuss decisions that affect all family members, scribbling appointments in the calendar, and talking while running away may be the best thing you can do under the circumstances.. . .
