Family Bonding During Dinnertime

Does anyone play question games at dinner? We do! I feel that it is important learn about as much as you can about the people you love most.  If 2020 has shown us anything, it is that life is fragile and should be spent with love and caring for all.  I love questions that are deep and fun. The rules are to write a question on a slip of paper.  I color code the by paper, blue for children, yellow for teens, pink for adults. We put them on a jar. There are no phones at the table! ( if you are the first to answer the phone, you make up a rule for that).  Here are a sample of questions.
Children: 
  • What did you try hard at today? Tell us about it.
  • What is the funniest word to you?
  • What do you like about grocery shopping? is there anything that you don’t like about grocery shopping?
  • Did you help a friend today?
  • What is the best animal in the world?
 Teens: 
  • What is the most embarrassing thing that I do?
  • What is the toughest thing about being your age?
  • If you had enough money for the rest of your life, what would you do with your time?What are three small victories that happened to you recently?
  • What is it that you wish we would understand about you most?
Adults :
  • Do you feel you are closer to your faith this year? How?
  • What brought you happiness this year? what brought you sadness?
  • How do we help you daily?
  • Who was your hero growing up? and Why?
  • If you had to pick a toy from your past what would it be?
  • What is one major area you want to focus on next year?
 At the end of the meal :
  • Who can balance a spoon on their nose for 2 minutes?
  • Who can eat a few crackers and whistle?
  • If you were on Sesame street , who would be your neighbor and why?
  • How can you tell that you are loved in this family?
  • One thing that you are thankful for?
  • What is our family goal?
 Anybody can find questions to ask on the internet, just make sure you ask them and tell those how you feel. Life is beautiful, crazy, tough, brilliant, emotional and triumphant. Do this every night or once a month. Just do it before you miss your chance.
