How about trying something this year that has amazing potential for making family life more fun, and at the very same time lets the entire family learn great problem-solving skills to use anywhere? We have been using family meetings for years – on a whole gob of problems, and other things to be decided – and we know family meetings work! Give it a try; then email me. I’d love to hear of your good work! And remember, if you are a family of two, or housemates, family meetings (house meetings) can work just as well as for more than two. Starting family meetings now means whoever takes part is learning great skills this year, and using a cool way to make decisions, together.
