Transcription: 
Any topic any family member feels is important can be talked about can be talked about in a family meeting. It can be vacation plans. What are we going to do during the holiday vacation? It can be community service projects. Let's adopt a family. Who are we going to buy gifts for? Who is contributing funds? What are we going to get them? It can be talking about meal preparation in the household. Who is going to be doing meals for the week? Chore distribution. It can be just celebrating somebody. You know, "This was a great week. You both were really successful in your spelling tests for the week." As long as it is on the agenda, you stick to the agenda, and everybody gets a voice.
