This isn't about weight loss, but I saw something I found interesting on the news tonight. They were talking to Bruce Feiler about his new book The Secrets of Happy Families. He says families should be like teams. Like a Navy Seal team, where everyone cooperates. Every member should have a say, and their opinions matter. Things should be planned out by the group.
He has a new approach to family dynamics. You know, it might be worth a try. I think I am going to get the book just to find out what it's all about. I only have one child still at home and he will be off to college in a few months. Who knows, it might still have some information that we could use. Maybe it could even be adapted to married couples.
Three of the things that he mentioned were:
- Adapt all the time
- Talk a lot
- Go out and play
