Family Meetings: The Ace for Raising Families that Work Together

What kids are saying about family meetings:

Family Meeting testimonial by 12 year old whose family practices family meetings.

“Family meetings have helped me and my brother so much. We really feel part of a team and enjoy being together.

The hardest part of the meetings are the ‘Family Matters’, ‘though they are definitely the most important. A couple of weeks ago, my brother brought up a matter about “laughing at or making fun of things that are really important” to him. Our meeting got really heated during our conversation and some of us left the discussion and others were crying.  We all got a drink of water, calmed down and went on to the next part of the meeting – ‘Encouragement Question’. The next week we came back to my brother’s matter and were quickly able to come up with a solution that worked for everyone.

Just this past weekend, my brother and I put the solution to the test. We were in the car with my dad and I was laughing at something my brother had said. He turned and looked at me and said quietly, “Family Honor” the code we had come up with in our meeting so that the other person would realize someone was feeling laughed at, not with. I stopped laughing and quickly looked over at him and said, “I’m sorry.” We moved on with our conversation and forgot all about it. My brother later told my family that he felt really good about being able to use the code words and he felt like I listened and understood him.

Family meetings have helped all of us feel like we are important.”
