What’s your family culture? Is it helping each of you thrive…at home, at school, and at work?
The Purpose – Set & Reach Family Goals
Create your Family GPS

- Plan concrete action steps to reach that goal
To listen to each other

To do our best in work
- To brainstorm solutions together at Challenge Share on Saturday mornings. Parents can also share a difficulty.
- To have Reading Time for everyone, 30 minutes after lunch on Sundays.
Timing – New Year
We can set goals anytime…and yet research shows that goals set at New Year’s are more likely to be kept! The beginning of the year marks one of the moments for pause, reflection, and new beginnings.
Let’s do it!
Tools – Positive Discipline inspired activities & tools
Through group activities, we help set a family GPS: identify our current situation and set a destination for growth in 2018.
The process is FUN with lots of group interaction, brainstorming and even role playing.
Once the goals set, we explore numerous relationship strengthening tools to apply in the family context to help turn these family aspirations into achievable, realistic, AND enjoyable objectives.
