About 7 years ago, I took my first interactive parenting class. It was led by a Child Development Educator who, along with a group of about 15 fellow moms, discussed anything and everything we were experiencing as parents. Although the class was generally unstructured, each semester we discussed our family goals. As we discussed them, we got new ideas and inspiration, and at times even disagreed with each other. It was always a wonderful time to reflect on what goals were important to our family. As my kids get older the goals change, but each year I still think of a new goal for our family. This year, I asked 8 fellow moms to share their family's goals for 2013... and their answers were so inspiring that I just had to share them here! - By Andrea Howe
