STICKY REUNION SITUATION:
We like what you’re saying about incorporating discussions with our young people, especially the males, into the reunion. What’s the best way to do that, especially if those conversations have never been had at a reunion? And, what’s the best way to get everybody on board?

CREATING DISCUSSIONS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE AT THE REUNION
I suggest a Facebook post be made announcing the coming reunion and plans to have discussions with younger family members about topics of interest to them. There should be a starter list of 3-4 topics, and invite the young people to add to the list via Facebook (or other social media) several weeks before the reunion. This way discussions and suggestions can take place ahead of time, people will be able to make input, take ownership of the session, and think about the topics beforehand. The topics need not be complicated or deep. For example:
Adding a topic or two based on current events will help the family explore individual points of view (especially generationally); help probe attitudes, beliefs and feelings; and create meaningful dialogue.
