    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...

    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.

    Conversation

    Families should be interested in one another, and not just on a surface level, like so many families I see. I didn't always get along with my family, but there was nothing I couldn't talk to them about. We were always very warm, interested, and comfortable around eachother...

    This Is So True

    There are so many lessons I learned from dining wth my family - to name a few: 1) learned what the back of a wooden spoon is for - and where it goes 2) learned that even if you don't like it, you are going to sit there until you finish everything on your plate 3) know that if my...

    The number of dinners I've had without my

    husband are very few in the last 7 years. I've always made a point to wait to eat for him. This last month though, his table manners seem to be magnified in my mind. I can hear every slurp, burp, smack, BLAH- I know he's done it for years but I can't seem to mute it out...

    Families Families should watch the weakest

    member in their family carefully. He may appear weak and stupid. But he has two sides to him, one white and one black. Also never be financially weak. In those times, the black side of your weakest member will become prominent.

    The Dinner Table Is A Connecting Point......

    Yes families benefit from having dinner together. I always made it a point that my family always sat down at the dinner table for dinner every night. No one sat in front of the TV to have dinner. No one just grabbed something and ran. This was a meeting point, where we were all...
