family bonding challenge
Have you ever thought about what your purpose as a parent might be? While we’re all still in the optimistic haze of January, take some time to think about it. We usually create visions for ourselves. Why not for the most important team of people in your life?
If you have a partner, ask them to come up with a statement, then come back together and compare. If you have children about 4 or older, ask them what they think your purpose as parents is. You’ll probably get a good laugh out of their answer.
Together you are creating a vision of where your family is headed. The process of creating your statement should, at the very least, spark some conversation about what your values are.
Shared family values act as a touchstone for all your parenting decisions. When you know what you believe in, what your motivations are, and what your purpose is, you can more easily filter out all the noise of what the rest of the world says a “good parent” is or does.
Talk about your mission statement at your next family meeting. You’re doing those right? (Check out week 1 of the family bonding challenge). Grab our free getting in sync with your partner guide if you need a little extra support before diving in.
