4 Reasons Family Goals Are Important
1. Gives Your Family Purpose
Goals are so amazing because it gives you a purpose. When your family comes together to create family goals, it gives everyone in the family something to look forward to, together.
No matter how young or old each member of your family is, you can create a goal that everyone can attain together. Whether it’s to spend more time together or to have a family night once a week, a family goal can give you all determination toward a common objective.
2. Brings you closer
When your family is working toward a purpose and common aim, it knits everyone together in a way that nothing else can. Building your family’s closeness and intimacy is so important especially for younger kids because it creates security for them.
Having a family goal that everyone is working toward can unite everyone together and has the potential to remedy any family division.
3. Helps keep everyone accountable
Because family goals give your family purpose and brings you all closer, it also keeps everyone accountable. The best and worst thing about a new goal is accountability.
Accountability is the best because it you are taking responsibility for your actions and owning them. Accountability can also be the worst because if you are failing to do what you said you were then it ultimately falls on you. But when you have a family that is accountable to each other, you help each other grow and most importantly, are there for each other when you fail AND succeed.
Having family goals can create an atmosphere of positive accountability in your home and teach your family how to try again when you fail and push harder when you succeed.
4. Sets a great model
Another great thing about family goals are that they set a great model for your family and for your children’s future. When you instill positive traditions and behaviors in your children, they tend to take those behaviors and continue them as they grow older.
Since you are operating as a united family and teaching your children to rely on each other for help, support and to help each other accomplish goals, then they will know it for themselves and hopefully share it with their future family.
