“ALONE WE CAN DO SO LITTLE; TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH.” -HELEN KELLER
Say: Today we are meeting as a family to discuss how to hold a family meeting! We want to help you feel stronger as a family unit and one way to do that is by having a weekly family meeting. Family meetings are important for a number of reasons. Setting time aside for one another make your family feel like a priority. They are also a great opportunity for open communication among family members and a great time to discuss events on the family calendar, plan family activities, problem solve about any conflicts in the home, and clarify expectations for your child.
