Family Meetings-- Silly or Valid?

I like to be in the know. I like to know what is expected of me too. And, I try to live by the golden rule and treat others as I would like to be treated. So, occasionally, if I have learned something valid to my family or I think we need to change our schedule or way of doing things in some way I call a family meeting. My grandson gives me the sticko look and its hard to pin him down for one. I am wondering what you folks think. Is a family meeting occasionally(maybe once ever three or four months) a bad thing or do you like to be aware too?

I meant family meetings, not gatherings. Like scheduling the kids chores and discussing it. That sort of thing.

We never had family meetings when I lived with my parents but I have seen them on tv shows.

We rarely had family meetings as everyone in the house knew what was expected of them. We each had our own chores and did them.

Not really fond of them but sometimes I have to attend family gatherings. Almost everyone would be there and they love to ask. My aunts sometimes ignored that some questions make me feel uncomfortable or annoyed. I tend to find a sanctuary when I attended one.

That's good. I always hated all the attention. I was talking about family meetings in a household though, not family gatherings.
