Parent Tip #106

Whenever possible, eat dinner as a family at the table, no distractions.


It's simple, yet effective. We have a rule about no toys at the table. Everyone eats the same meal. And a new tradition we started a few weeks back is that everyone has to talk about one thing they learned today.

I love our dinner conversations. Some are silly. Some are interesting. Some are life altering.

What are some of your dinner rules/routines?

  1. We had this tradition in my house when I was growing up and I recently made my fiance promise we will continue when we have kids. I can't even tell you how much those dinners together matter. We still do them when we visit our parents, and we're all in our twenties! This is such a great tradition!

    Anyway, to answer your question: some rituals I've just started for meal time are using cloth napkins (because it makes the meal feel more special and it's better for the environment), and lighting a single candle (votive, candlestick, whatever) when we sit for dinner. The candlelight always makes the meals feel more intimate (even if it's just egg sandwiches or oven pizza). :)
