You May Just Be Surprised At What You Learn At The Kitchen Table!
A was reading an article on OldWays.org and found this to be interesting. They finally gave the smaller, more informal kitchen table the respect it deserves. Not just for eating, homework, games or even a place for guests to rest their feet as a meal is prepared, this humble structure serves a far more important role…it promotes togetherness, strong connections and conversation. When my son was born, my best friends parents told me that they learned more about their kids lives during dinner than any other time or place. It was the place where conversation was king, no phone, no tv…just a family and their lives as well as the opportunity to practice basic table manners (God knows there is a shortage of this now a days!) So give it a try, gather the clan around the table for a week of meals and be amazed by the conversation that simply happens.
