Leader in Me at Home: Family Mission Statement

We recently had the opportunity to attend a workshop at Family Forward, taught by The Leader In Me. One of the key things we learned was that, "creating and maintaining goals is important not only for school and work, but for family as well." Communication and cooperation are a big part of being a successful and healthy family. What better way to bring your family together than by creating a family mission statement that everyone can get behind?

Since my children are both young, I wasn't sure if I would have to do all of the work or if they would be able to give their own input. I quickly realized that they were more than able to speak their minds and share their opinions in their own ways. So, it became clear that now was the time to unite us in a common goal. mission statement Once we decided to make a family mission statement, we had to come together and agree on what it would say. Everyone got to give their input on what they thought was an important part of being in our family. As a group, we brainstormed on a piece of paper using words, phrases, and even illustrations from my youngest. From there, I composed our family mission statement to include everyone's point of view.
