When the day to day feels like “wash, rinse, repeat” and find yourself saying over and over "I'm done!", I'm exhausted!" ... what are the values you believe are governing you and your family? Are you able to say that your values are present day to day
It's hard to emphatically say "Yes, 100%!" However, let me reassure you it is possible to work on getting ourselves and our family closer to that everyday.
Values are things like: honesty, timeliness, trust, humor, fun, respect, creativity, adventure, communication, thankfulness, excellence, abundance ...etc.
Have you and your family defined your family values?
Have you shared your personal values with your kids?
These are things we talk about in generalized terms, but our values are our internal compass - guiding each of our decisions. Our value structure informs the decisions we make and why we make them, both for ourselves and our families.
Whether we're conscious of it or not, we're modeling those very values and our kids pick up on the consistency or inconsistency of how we're honoring those very values. But how many families take the deliberate action to clearly state the values being used as the family's compass? All too often we miss the boat on having this conversation. The values that govern our homes act as a "checks and balance" for why we're in or out of alignment with what's actually manifesting in the family environment. Are we consciously using our values day to day as a point of governance?
Take a minute to make a list of the values you want your family to stand for. Of those values, what are the top 3 that govern your parenting? Journal if it helps you to explore what you value the most.
Psst ... this is a perfect topic to be had at a family meeting. FYI ... "Family Meetings" and "Values" are also areas we get into in "Stop Battling & Start Connecting" as foundational components to the section "Validating without Spoiling".
No one wants entitled, spoiled kids that take things for granted! We want to support and encourage our kids – boost them up without feeding into the ego.
