Should I set goals for myself and my family?

Have Realistic Expectations

This tip comes from an article written by Shellee Darnell on Single Parents Raise Good Kids Too! “Focus on success and not on failure. Set realistic goals as a family and work together to accomplish these goals. Decide what is important and prioritize accordingly. Have family meetings on a regular basis and allow children to have input. Learn to effectively communicate and solve family problems together while still demonstrating that you are the boss.”
