Family Meetings Made Simple: Building Peaceful Homes Together

Jeanne-Marie Paynel


We all want to live in a peaceful home and have an easy-going, satisfying, and joyful family life…

We also know that what happens at home is the foundation for our children’s immediate and long-term success. No matter its makeup, a family resembles any big company or small business. It needs a plan and meetings to follow through, evaluate objectives, and find solutions for the inevitable hurdles.

Introducing the Family Meeting.

Learn what, why, and how to have consistent and effective Family Meetings in your home. These are the brick-and-mortar of any Positive Discipline practicing home. All family members will learn to communicate their needs and wants clearly and find solutions to everyday family life dilemmas.

Family Meetings provide an opportunity to teach children valuable social and life skills for a solid lifelong foundation.
