In this cast we talk about how having (and maintaining) a family calendar can ensure that the family schedule reflects priorities as opposed to the schedule causing the priorities. Scheduling only gets more complex as the kids get older so having one calendar that sets the agenda is extremely helpful.
In this cast we talk about taking the time to create unique family memories and the tension that comes with balancing family time and the world outside the house.
Creative Family Time doesn’t have to be expensive…and something is better than nothing. Camping in the living room, game night and creative writing are just a few examples of experiences your kids will delight in and the effort is completely worth the time.
In this cast we talk about some of the barriers that get in the way of us working towards being grateful. You may be surprised to hear Chuck talk about how we need to fully forgive others (and how we can do it) so that we can be completely grateful. You’ll probably want to listen to the first Gratitude cast before starting this one.
How does gratitude relate to being a better father? Well, as you may already know based on experience, what we say isn’t absorbed by our family nearly as much as what we do. So by learning how to have an attitude of gratefulness our thoughts will naturally flow into our actions…which are the cues our family react to the most.
