Did you make New Year’s resolutions? How about as a family? Here’s some suggestions on making some family resolutions to strengthen your bonds.
1. Eat dinner as a family. Families seem to be busier than ever these days, so making room for consistent togetherness time is even more important.
2. Build confidence in children’s strengths. Don’t spend all your time pointing out your kids’ mistakes and weaknesses. Children grow up to be successful and self-reliant because they’re sure of their strengths. Give them the confidence to tackle anything.
4. Hold regular family meetings. These times should be used to discuss schedules, goals, and even grievances.
5. Make personal resolutions a family affair. If you’ve decided you want to do more charitable work, consider making your personal goal a family goal. Volunteering as a family is a powerful way to build self-esteem and build a sense of community in yourself and your kids.
