Letter Home: Daily planning skills

I use what I learned in Venturing [co-ed program of The Boy Scouts of America ages 14-21] to conduct our daily planning sessions.  

One of our goals is to be better companions. We...mention something we think is awesome about our companion and then something she could improve on. 

We start our day's planning sessions with a prayer. We set our goals for the day and then plan the day. 

At the end of the day we evaluate how we did on the day's goals and talk how we could do better the next day. We conduct roses, thorns, and buds. [Roses, thorns, and buds is like the stop, start, and continue evaluation process.]
