I grew up in a home where both parents worked, and we made sure we had one meal a day together as a family. I am now a senior citizen and till today,I try to have at least one meal together with my children, if we are all at home. It has helped us stay connected as a family all these years.
Thanks for sharing
We always eat our dinners together.
We’re still working on those manners!
Every grocery store visit the kids get to pick 1 new thing each time, and Saturdays we try an international meal with as authentic ingredients as possible. It's a lot of fun and both my kids aren't very pcik eaters because of it, willing to try new things pretty easy, since we have done this since they were tiny babies.
We try to eat dinner together every night.
Sharing gives you an opportunity to teach!
Appreciate those family dinners together! In the blink of an eye, the kids will be grown and raising their own families.
Thank you! Great article!
I really like having a family dinner.
Thanks for the info.
Since I am alone the TV is my meal companion!
My husband and I enjoy eating our meals together and having a nice conversation.
