Get Organised with Family Meetings

I received a letter from a happy client this week, telling me of the progress she and her family had made getting organised.  After she told me a fairly typical story about her children being unmotivated to contribute to keeping the house in order (if you have children you know what I mean), I had advised her to try family meetings.  I have found them to be useful for getting the whole family “on board” and fostering co-operation and responsibility.  I believe they help children realise they have a voice, and how to use it appropriately.

Well, my client did try the family meeting, and was really pleased with the outcome.  The whole family worked together to come up with solutions and rosters.  Psychologist, Kimberley L. Keith, has written “How to Hold a Family Meeting”.  Give it a go and let me know how you go.
