Holidays Are for the Family

Holiday Family Decision Making

Having to make so many decisions this holiday season can be overwhelming. Since most decisions that you will make will impact your family, why not get them involved? From who will prepare the holiday dinner to who will clean up after dinner, everyone can help.

However, you must start with making some decisions. Schedule a family meeting and simply create your plan by answering the following four questions:

1. What do you want to accomplish?
2. How will you do it?
3. When will you do it?
4. Who will be involved?

You can use these simple questions to help make any family decision. Making decisions as a family can help reduce conflict and enhance the younger member’s ability to set goals and be a team player by contributing to the success of making sure the goals are accomplished.
