Forging stronger and more trusting relationships with your children will make it so much easier to withstand whatever challenges come your family's way today and in the months and years ahead. A way to build this deeper bond is to have meaningful communication where feelings, thoughts, fears and ideas can be shared freely. One of the best ways to do that is through family meetings.

Family meetings can be done daily or weekly, in an environment that's upbeat and involves some fun. Remember, this isn't a staff meeting at work… it's you and your kids! To understand why you need family meetings, how to run them and everything else you need to know, read this quick article.
