Where do children get a chance to simply sit down with their families and share what happened at school hear a parents funny story from the office or just share a jokeAt the dinner table of course But between soccer practice choir rehearsal homework evening meetings household chores and traveling on business families these days often find it difficult to sit down together for dinnerWhy worry about having family dinners Because children learn to communicate and to interact with others by doing it themselves and by hearing their families do the same And when it comes to family communication theres no place like the dinner tableOne easy way to begin dinner conversations is by asking each family member to name one good thing that happened during that day such as Mary shared a toy with me or I made a new friend This exercise serves two purposes It begins your dinner time on a positive note It also provides a much better starting point for further conversation than questions that generate one-word answers such as How was school today Fine or What happened at La Petite NothingAnd yes sometimes it will be difficult to get everyone to the table for dinner But if you make family dinner a priority your children will benefit - by talking by listening and simply by being there at the dinner table with the people who matter most to them
