    Dining Together

    I was brought up this way, we always dined together.  I believe this is what family is all about, talk about the day event and so on.  This is when the whole family has a chance being together, talk + enjoy the family time and meal.

    I can assure you that not doing things together

    will contribute to the falling apart of a family. I'm trying to remember the last time I actually shared a table with Kid and her Mom....hmmmmm, not coming to mind at all. I've heard all kinds of excuses- you're home late from work....there's a show on TV....we had a late snack...
