Straight Talk Leadership Seminars: 30 Tips to a More Fulfilling Dinner Time with your Family [NOOK Book]

Overview

Both my wife and I were raised in very different families. My wife was raised in a soft-spoken, Christian household while I was raised in a very loud, Italian household. Though we came from very different backgrounds, we both grew up in households where dinnertime was not only a time of eating, but a time to connect as a family. While there were some differences in our respective homes (think ?My Big Fat Greek Wedding,? replace the word ?Greek? with ?Italian? and the movie is now about my wife and me) we shared a...

Overview

Both my wife and I were raised in very different families. My wife was raised in a soft-spoken, Christian household while I was raised in a very loud, Italian household. Though we came from very different backgrounds, we both grew up in households where dinnertime was not only a time of eating, but a time to connect as a family. While there were some differences in our respective homes (think “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” replace the word “Greek” with “Italian” and the movie is now about my wife and me) we shared a love for sitting down as a family.

As we had children, we adjusted our routine to ensure we all sat down at the same time, prayed together, and enjoyed servings of conversation along with our meat and potatoes. When our kids became teenagers, we really began to see the results of years of dinner time as a family. Dinner is more than filling the gullet; it is a place where we connect, talk about issues, and just have fun together. On many days this is the only time we are all together because of our busy lives. Take away that time and we lose valuable family connections. If these connections are not made, life-long negative consequences could result.

In this mini-seminar I outline 30 tips to enhance your dinner time experience and use the dinner table as a place to connect with your family. Some tips may resonate with you, some may not be applicable at all. The goal isn’t to apply everything in this mini-seminar at your next meal. My hope is that you’ll glean a few new ideas which will help you enhance your dinner time experience and improve your relationship as a family.
