With our busy lives these days, it’s hard to preserve a true family dinner. But family meals are important, and eating out at a fun restaurant for kids is one way to accomplish this.
We try to all sit down together for dinner as a family once a week, usually on Sundays. The keys for making this work for me are cooking easy family recipes at home or going out to a kid friendly restaurant. Once we’re sitting down, the grown-ups put the gadgets away (after I pry the iPad away from the hubs!) and we really TALK. I have one friend who asks her kids to share one nice thing they did for someone else that week, which I think is a terrific idea and something I hope to implement.
