    Answers from an Apostle

    A family council is a meeting on any day of the week. It can be with just you and a parent or with your whole family. It’s a time when you can …

    • Turn off electronics and look at and listen to each other.

    • Tell your parents about your worries or fears.

    • Offer to help a sibling during a hard time.

    • Make goals and write them down.

    Combined with prayer, a family council can invite the Savior’s presence in your home. It can help your family be happy.
