    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...

    I Really Believe So

    At least mine did. Since my early childhood my family has been dining together. It didn't stop when I became teenager. It didn't stop as my parents divorced. We, our mum and us siblings still continued to get together at the same table. We all are very close, we all support each...

    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...

    Keeps A Family Close

    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
