First of all, what is a family meeting? A family meeting is a short time when a family gets together to talk about life: Whatever is happening in the upcoming week or month, what issues the family is having, what positive things have been happening in the family, what help is needed, and anything else a family wishes to discuss. Family meetings can happen regularly, like every Sunday, or they can be called by any family member as needed. Family meetings involve the children as much as possible. Children can help facilitate the discussion or answer questions.
