Or just good old-fashioned time together as a family having conversation?
The term “family meeting” gives me the heebie-jeebies. It sounds so serious and business-y. There are times, however, when a more serious conversation is necessary. Some discussions should not be put off while waiting for the perfect opportunity to bring up the subject matter. So those conversations seem to fit under a more formal “family meeting” title.
This can only serve as a bandaid for so long…
I wonder how many people hold regular “family meetings” and actually have written agendas. Feel free to comment and share your take on family conversations vs. formal meetings.
