Does he fully grasp what morals and values are important to our family? Sure my husband and I have discussed these thing amongst ourselves, but we never explicitly discussed it with our. Bottom line, every family should have a family mission statement. Schedule a family meeting. Plan a time to explain to your children that your family will be developing a family mission statement. Covey suggests that you make this planning meeting a special occasion for the family.
Brainstorm with your family to determine what your family is all about. Children will be more likely to adhere to your mission statement when they help to create it. Narrow down your list. Once you have answered the above questions, you will no doubt have a large amount of information that could be included in your mission statement.
Review the answers given by family members and then work with them to determine the top ten priorities for your family. We did this by taking a family vote. Write your family mission statement. Keep your statement short because you want it to be easily remembered.
A rule of thumb is to keep your mission statement under words. For example, you can write it as a paragraph, as a series of bullets, as a song, etc. The key is whatever works for your family. Check out these sample mission statements from other families.
Create a visual display of your family mission statement. Once you are satisfied with your family mission statement, frame it and hang it where it will be seen daily. This will ensure that family members have a constant reminder of what your family is all about and what you are seeking to accomplish.
Review family mission statement often. Try and find ways to refer back to your mission statement through-out the day. For example, when my kids do something wrong I ask them if their behavior is in line with our mission as a family. This usually opens up the door to discuss their behavior and they get a clear explanation of why their behavior is problematic and what they need to do to fix it. I hope you find this information helpful as you set out to create your family mission statement. Great idea! I have never thought about making a mission statement before but I think it is a brilliant concept.
I absolutely love this whole idea of creating a family mission statement! I am going to do this with my husband tonight! What a great concept! My sorority does something similar to this at college, but I absolutely adore this idea for a family and can really see this making a difference.
Heck yeah — why not! Great idea to expand having mission statements for the family and not just individual. I love the idea of a family mission statement! Im going to chat with my family about this tonight! These are phrases we use over and over as part of our family identity and they refer back to our core values.
Creating a family mission statement sounds like an awesome idea. Thanks for mentioning that Deb. It really becomes a hard sell as they get older. I think this is a great idea. I think we just try to raise our kids in the Christian path with good morals and hope they make the best decisions.
This is a wonderful idea. My family ranges from middle school to adultsthey just still live in our family home.
It would be wonderful to put some of these into effect and have more quality time as we are all in so many different directions. I would love a family meeting to discuss these ideas. One of the reasons it was so important for me to do this is because as a family we were all being pulled in different directions and barely had time to eat dinner together much less have a family meeting. I want them to know that meetings help the family improve as a unit. I will try this soon!
We came up with a family mission statement a couple years ago, of course I want to go through and do it again now that two of my kids are older and could have some input into it. I love it though! This is an awesome idea! A great family bonding project.
We are going to do this at our house. Thanks for sharing.
This is a great idea! A nice way to the start the new year too with your family.
So helpful. This is great information and so helpful! And it seems like the perfect time of year to create a family mission statement, as well. I am pinning this so we can work on it this weekend. Thanks so much! Love the idea of sitting down as a family and talking this through. Thanks for sharing this with us, Yanique! We discuss our Christian faith and a lot about politics and economics and I think it will make my kids much more ready for the world than many are.
Completely agree! There is no one right way to do that. Crystal it seems like you have found what works for your family and I encourage other parents to do the same! We also used to have family meetings, which our kids hated. There really is no trick or science to it.
Laying that foundation is key. There is a lot more buy in from them then for sure! This is great! Thank you so much!
