S3E10: Creating your Family Manifesto

Creating a family manifesto is a wonderful way to identify the values and beliefs that your family holds most dearly.  In this episode, I speak with educator and family coach Kris Hughes about the benefits of family manifestos. We open by exploring what a family manifesto is and how it can build a culture of family belonging. After Kris shares her experience with introducing her family manifesto to her blended household, she highlights how your manifesto should be created collaboratively to represent the best of both parent’s upbringings. We then discuss how your manifesto should meet the developmental needs of parents and children — after all, we never stop growing. Later, we touch on the importance of continually learning from your partner, what you can do to bring your family manifesto to life, and how your manifesto can teach your children to look inward to find answers. Near the end of the episode, we share beautiful moments where our children have expressed gratitude for our parenting style. A powerful tool to create an intentional and cohesive household, tune in to hear more about writing your family manifesto.
