I love family conferences. Everyone has an opportunity to voice their opinions and share their ideas of what they’d like to see happening with everyone as a team, group and family all on the same side.
Maybe I love them because I have great intentions but nobody else will participate. Ah yes. That’s it.
How do I get family to attend family conferences meant to improve our communication and bonds of love?
Uhmmm. I just answered me. Again. You can bring a horse to water but… well, that made me thirsty.
Going for a drink of water will be much more productive than mulling over the impossible, I’m sure. Besides, I never have much patience for gang mentality. Coalitions formed on gossip and assumption without asking ME a single question.
Happen if we had a family conference, we’d have to hire a mediator or I’d never get a word in without being attacked for the misguided assumptions of others. Funny how that works.
The more you talk, the more they attack. Listen? Noooooooooh. Ask questions? Absoluuutteely not. Why, then we might actually find out we agree and all wanted the exact same thing: to love and be loved and know the bond is so strong that a little bad weather can’t even touch it let alone wobble it.
Oh, I know. I am daydreaming again. But I still can do that… can’t I… lol
