The Family Meeting

Family meeting

Once a week, on Friday afternoons while Benjamin naps, we try to have a family business meeting. We open with prayer, give compliments to each other, talk about the upcoming week, democratically decide on family issues (ranging from behavioral problems to what to do for family fun time), and give out allowance. We have a Field Notes notebook for our agenda and minutes, which Steve or I will fill out as the secretary, and we all take turns being the chairperson (since Matthew can’t read, one of us assists him by whispering in his ear). Overall, this has worked out well for our family, but sometimes it’s challenging even getting the meeting to begin!
