Sign up NOW for our free family webinar for parents and kids to discuss values together.

Join us on February 7 at 14:00 Paris time for a family activity to help your family together define your values AND what that means in your home.

Exploring Courage: It Worked for Us

June 6, 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day.  Remember?  That’s when Allied forces landed on the Normandy beaches to fight for freedom.  9 000 Allied soldiers died on that day to enable 100 000 fellow military to march, swim, fly, and drop into Normandy. 

Freedom.

Brotherhood.

Sacrifice.

Victory.

D-Day is HUGE Deal Day still in our year.

Many of these young soldiers knew their lives were at stake.  Faced with danger, they went forward anyway.  That’s courage.

Would you and I and our kids call out “present” when facing challenge?  How do we encourage courage in our homes?  Try these simple, entertaining, and rich ways.

Boosting Family Love: It Worked for Us!

We had a LOVERLY (!) time at the Boost Love Family Workshop last week-end. I just loooove this picture of BEAMING kids when they are so confident of being loved and of having their love received.

Here’s our vision.  Great leaders make great parents.  At work, we frame a vision, communicate it, and organize to make it happen.  Isn’t that what we do at home too?

We got inspired by business growth (new customers, new products & services, greater value of each) to boost love through building up our relationships, the frequency of our interactions, and the depth of our communication.

I just love your workshops! You are so engaging and motivating and inspiring! (Thank you.  I do thrive on affirmation.  Smile.  Well, GRIN!)  I guess what helps the most is the practical way you put things into perspective for us.  Things we never necessarily think about in a structured way - but should!!!...I'm looking forward to the next one!!!”

Boost Love - Parent & Child Workshop in Paris

For every “NO!” how often do you encourage?

So much of our family conversation seems tainted by critique or correction.  Maybe it's because so much of our discussion centers around giving instructions. 

Do these sound familiar?

Dad: "How is homework coming along?  Did you do it WELL?"

or

Mom: "For how long did you brush your teeth?"

Kid:  "Why do you ask me again and again?"

Mom:  "Didn't you know a mom is a spy?!  Besides, too often I find your toothbrush dry!"

Great homes share exchanges like these.  They also include more...

Family Annual Review Peek-a-boo—To Mom, be more generous. To child, learn through a job.

We are coming to a close of our Family Annual Review of 2013.  One son remains to give and receive his feedback with his parents.  This is the fourth in the series of posts to give you a glimpse into one our most precious and powerful family moments. 

Click here for our How To’s.  Read on to learn how my son told me to be more generous and I encouraged him to grow by working simple jobs of manual labor or service.

We are seated at the dinner table and the boys chose to go around in the order of seating.  It’s our second son who finally got the floor.

Family Annual Review Peek-a-boo—To Mom, stop being a fashion victim. To child, think before you speak

Two of our sons have already given (to parent) and received (from Mom) feedback about what each does well and should continue doing, and about one behavior to consider changing.  (Catch the beginning of the discussion here). 

Business Continues As Usual

We’re at the dinner table, getting close to dessert time, and it’s the turn of youngest of four sons.   The meal keeps on flowing throughout the exchange.

Mom:  “Darling, what would you like to tell me about what I do well and what I should think about changing?”

Family Annual Review Peek-a-boo—To Mom, be flexible. To child, go forward step by step

We're on a roll with the Family Annual Review.  Our eldest son has given and received his feedback (read here) for the Family Annual Review.  We’re sitting around the dinner table and Son 3 is next to him. 

Perfecting Process

(In a teensy bit of a controlling style) I turn to our second eldest son.

Mom:  “What is your feedback for me?”
