Family Team Building
Families need an easy way to create unity in the home and these 2 family team building tips are just what the coaches ordered. We guarantee that you can put these into play immediately.
Why is family unity so important? Families are constantly being pulled apart by so many negative influences and even some good ones.
Even when dealing with positive activities like sports teams or band or 4-H, families need to make sure they are not being stretched too thin.
Our simple belief is the family should still be the central influence upon our children’s lives. This obviously changes to some degree as our children grow older.
Family unity will not happen magically and you must work at family team building for a real closeness to develop.
We trust that you’ll love the results you get as you try them out. In order to help you remember them, we will use the concept of the “check engine light”.
Family Team Building Tips
We will call the first tip “TEAM CHECK”.
For your family team building to be successful, it is absolutely a must that you and your spouse work together as a team on issues related to parenting your children.
Every couple, though, has areas of disagreement. How are you supposed to handle this?
First, take some time to find out what those areas are. Fathers tend to be more punitive while Moms tend to be more nurturing and forgiving.
Second, develop a simple plan of compromise that you both can agree on. Be willing to give a little. That’s part of teamwork also.
And third, set aside a specific time each month to do a monthly team check on your progress of acting as a team.
Family Team Building Fun
And we will call the second family team building tip “Family Projects”. In today’s world, you must have an entertaining way to counter-act all those things working at getting you family divided against itself.
The idea of working together as a family unit has been lost in the midst of everybody’s busy schedules. Do you think the coach of a team would sit back and watch his team grow farther and farther apart?
What can you do to create some family unity?
Schedule a short 15 minute meeting with your family to get some ideas on a “family project”. Make a list of options that are affordable and workable that you approve of.
Then take a family vote to determine the winner. Set a date to carry out this project. Make absolutely sure you start out with something SIMPLE and FUN. Keep the other ideas for future use.
Do this once a month. It will take a little bit of your time, but the benefits are priceless and will bring your family closer to being guaranteed winners.
We invite you to check out our other parenting tips, but only after you have acted on this one.
