Family Dinner Conversations
We are in the stage of life where having family dinners together is really easy. No one works late. The kids aren’t involved in anything after school. It’s natural for us to just be together every night.
We’re trying to use this time to practice having conversations. Of course, we have conversations all day, everyday. But when we’re all sitting around the dinner table, the talking can easily swirl into crude talk (fart! poop! blah blah!), complaining (because kids are super tired), or “adult” talk (since Jake and I have a lot to tell each other about our individual days!).
In case you want to join in on the fun, here are some of the questions I’m adding to our Question Bucket!
- The Family Dinner Project: Questions divided by age groups. Helpful depending on what stage of life your kids are in! The questions are unique and really interesting!
- Growing Book by Book: This is definitely my favorite. This blogger posted questions by month, each month having a theme. January, for instance, is a bunch of “What If” questions…. what if there were no cars? I love the uniqueness of that. Sets in motion some creative and flexible thinking!
- Six Sisters Stuff: 50 Family Dinner Conversation Starters. These are pretty basic, but if you are starting from scratch, basic can be a good place to start.
- Beauty and Bedlam: Over 220 questions, in printable form.
- Childhood 101: Not very many, but some of them are really good.
- Yep, there is also an app for that.
