Take back the dinner table.
Dinner Games grew from the concern I had for my eldest son. I began to worry even more when most of his responses were either shrugged shoulders or one worded replies, like “fine” or just “ok.” Only nine years old at the time, I knew my husband and I needed to find a better way to communicate with him as well as our younger son.
As a mom, I noticed my two sons talked more often when playing a game or doing some sort of hands-on activity where they casually talked while working on something else. That’s why I knew our family’s evening meal would be the perfect opportunity for conversation and a chance for all of us to enjoy a little downtime together and relax.
I began searching for discussion starters and game ideas that were perfect to play during meals. I wanted to optimize this time each evening for great conversation and create an open environment where everyone felt their opinion and ideas were valued and appreciated.
The good news is, my idea worked! Every day my boys ran to the table for more family fun.
Dinner games became our family’s favorite hour of the day and, even after all this time, still continues to be an important part of our daily routine.
