Everyone is busy. Life is moving swiftly. Family dinnertime may be more important than you know, especially for your kids. Experts warn the deterioration of family mealtimes reduces the lines of communication whilst further reducing the family values as a whole. The experts have always supported family dinnertime and stress the importance nevertheless, I wondered if their studies applied to our family. Did we really fit the study profiles?
Our Family Dinnertime
Hubby and I were adamant that the kids be home for dinner. The kids would groan and eye rolls would fly when we denied their requests to be elsewhere. Of course, after school and community sports activities were the exception. Oftentimes the whole family would simply eat late, sometimes exceedingly late, rather than eat dinner separately.
Weekends included fun family dinner times such as a movie night or a sports theme, sort of like a party. This changed up our traditional dinnertime format but kept the purpose. Kenmore Live Studio presents fun recipes and videos from top chefs, perfect for one of these fun dinner times. Wish they had been available back when my kids were young. I recall sometimes questioning whether our dinnertime insistence was simply an old-fashioned tradition, especially after a movie night dinner. Examining our routine dinnertime dispelled those second thoughts immediately as sharing our daily woes and joys afforded an obvious continual connection.
