Family meetings help open up communication, strengthen relationships, and resolve specific conflicts. Meetings are also another way to bring consistency and routine into your family life. Here are some simplified suggestions on how to start      implementing family meetings in your home

  • Set up a consistent day and time to meet. Pick a time where everyone is most likely to participate (ex: Mondays at 7, every other Tuesday after dinner, etc.)
  • Begin and end on time. Maybe designate someone to be in charge of the time.
  • Always start and end on a positive note
  • Rotate roles such as leader, timekeeper, and secretary to help promote equality, active listening, and problem solving
  • Focus on one topic/problem at a time
  • Take a break if things get to intense

Start off with the following sample structure, and alter it as you figure out what works best for your family
  • Start with complements – Each person gives at least one compliment to another member in the family
  • Brainstorm a topic such as an upcoming birthday, family rules, rewards, chores, consequences, etc.
  • End with something positive to share such as something you enjoyed during the day or something you are looking forward to

I also enjoy reading the comments, but notice that a lot of people should stay on topic to try and add value to the original blog post. I would also encourage everyone to bookmark this page to your favorite service to help spread the word. I'll use this information for my essay topics.

Family relationship will strengthen if and only good communication between each family member is applied. Sometimes there are things that we choose to ignore to talk about because you're afraid of what they will say once they knew about it but keeping secrets from family members just worsen the situation. Occasional open forum inside the house will help everyone to share their problems, their suggestion and also to correct what they think is not right. I truly suggest that because nowadays children are too drown in their mobile/laptop and they forget what does communication really means.

We had a family reunion after 7 years last May. In our case, we sang together, our parents exchanged a lot of stories, while we, the younger ones spent laughter while we are on the swimming pool. Ours' kinda unique, I must say. Well basically, family reunion is about spending time and catching up with your relatives' situations, and of course, having a good time together. Thank you for the tips! Will apply it the next time we gather.

I think communication should be the top priority of every household. A family is not a family if each person does not know what's happening to the life of every individual. Each person has to have that support coming from his own family. After all, they're the last people that family member can run to. A good state of communication should be the tantamount concern of every family.
