If you are not a eating at the dinner table type of a family than use car time to talk. Talk talk and talk some more! Talking actually creating conversation at the dinner table is becoming a thing of the past. Talking with you children each time you sit down for dinner teaches them that talking to Mom or Dad is easy and fun. This dinner talk with children will grow and you will teach them how to communicate or confide in adults so when they have a question or problem they naturally can talk about it. For adults it makes life more interesting, it builds a relationship and it’s fun. Sitting down, as a family, to have dinner together is a thing of the past.
In fact, according to a survey by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University, the number of U.S. families who do eat dinner together is actually on the rise. Families who eat together have better overall nutrition. The kids get better grades in school and are less likely to take drugs, smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol than those from families who rarely eat dinner together. But perhaps the biggest benefit of eating family dinners is that parents are fully engaged with their kids. Not sure how to get your kids to open up?
