Great tips for family fun.

Jul 11, 2013

A collection of different methods of family cohesiveness, a lot of these boil down to communication. Some interesting things to try here, from regular Agile meetings to checklists, and some which seem over-the-top (mission statements and massive family reunion competitions). Could be useful as a conversation-starter; the sections that resonate with you are likely different than with me. (Jul 1-10)
