In our house, a weekly family meeting on Sunday afternoons helps set expectations, troubleshoot issues, and – best of all – make plans for FUN! In today’s episode Sarah does a deep dive into how family meetings work in the Powers house, from what, when, why, and how they happen to sample agenda items and ideas for making them fun for kids of different ages. As always, we share book recommendations from what we’re reading and what YOU’re reading. Join us!
