Our new flag says it all…”this family has goals”
2 goals that we have decided upon are:
– have dinner together at least 3 times a week. With everyone having different evening activities this can be difficult but it’s very important and definitely something our kids enjoy. We try to make these evenings special by using our formal dining room and having the kids help to set the table as well as putting forth much effort in that evenings dinner. Research suggests that family dinners help to raise happier, more confident children.
– encourage creativity: we are all uniquely creative and with 3 kids exploring their interests, that can sometimes mean a pile of paper and markers somewhere, playdoh and clay in another spot and Legos somewhere else. I have learnt to stop trying to clean the messes and allow my kids to be as creative as they want to.
