Here is a little test you can take to help determine what type of family you are, and who has the greatest influence on your child. In January we will look at how to set a year’s worth of goals for your family and this list will help as you plan.
- Excluding yourself and your spouse, list all of the people who spend at least one hour with your child during the course of a week
Next to their names, place the total hours per week they spend with your child.
- Count the number of people you have listed who have standards and values that differ from your own.
- Now count the number of hours they spend with your child weekly.
