I was lucky enough to grow up in a family of 11 where we were able to sit down to dinner every night. My dad would hold a little spelling bee. He adjusted the difficulty according to age. It was something we all looked forward to at days end. Lots of stories were shared and everyone was there! My own kids are grown and now we have Sunday dinners that include their significant others and cousins who have moved to town. There are no pressures to attend and we all have a great time sharing the weeks events. I catch my husband totally enjoying the hosting part! We ❤ Sunday dinners.......we have that as a sign above the kitchen window!

Oh.....one more thing.....PLEASE teach your children and grandchildren manners! I work at elementary schools and some kids aren't learning any of that! Thank you!

When my kids were young I used to buy "the Book of Questions"......I think there were a few editions. We didn't use it all the time but once in a while I would pull it out and pose a question (they were not informative, they were judgement based, such as -- "is it ever ok to cheat?"). Always a good conversation starter.
