The new year is almost upon us and I bet you’re ready to make 2012 the best year ever for your family.
I know I am, but I can’t do it alone.
It’s time for us to join forces with the rad people living in our houses to create resolutions for the entire family! I just know you’ve got big dreams for your family; dreams that go far beyond putting dirty clothes in the hamper (although that would be nice too).
With a little teamwork and planning, we’ve got 2012 in the bag!
Not sure where to start? Have no fear; here are a few ideas to get you started!
Schedule regular family meetings
Like you don't have enough to schedule, right? Listen, family meetings don't have to be a chore. Make them fun with plenty of road snacks and a silly hat that gets passed around. Why a silly hat? Why NOT a silly hat? Worn by whoever has floor to speak, the silly hat keeps family meetings lively and ensures everyone has an opportunity to speak. It's amazing how this proactive approach to parenting can bring you closer together.
