Dinner Time Is Family Time
When I was growing up, we all sat down at the dinner table, shared conversations, and that was the time we would voice our concerns or problems to our parents. It was also a time that we were not to bring books, magazines or toys to the table. It was dinner time and time my parents and us enjoyed spending together.
Now that I have a family of my own, this is one thing I still do, we sit down and eat dinner together without phones or anything at the table. I make sure we all disconnect from the internet and spend time talking and this is where we #FindYourBOLD!
I want my children to know that we are open to any conversation topic, I don’t want them to think anything is forbidden, if they have a concern, I want them to let us know. This has helped them open up more and let us know what is going on in their life.
One meal that makes everyone #FindYourBOLD is Sloppy Joes and Ore-Ida® Bold & Crispy fries. Normally, we don’t eat too much french fries, but when it comes to Sloppy Joe nights, we treat ourselves to those yummy Ore-Ida fries, and this time we went BOLD. With our Sloppy Joes this week we had Zesty Twirls and Zesties. I have to say my family was ecstatic to try the Ore-Ida® Bold & Crispy fries.
I know creating great “table talk” with your teens and tweens can be a challenge but it can be done! How is conversation at your dinner table? Is it like pulling teeth to get your family members to pull themselves away from electronics and share something meaningful?
Do you have any tips for adding more flavor to you dinner time banter?
