Quick, name someone, dead or alive, you’d like to have dinner with.
Do you have the name of that person in your mind?
Who is it?
Harriet Tubman? Bill Gates? The Apostle Paul?
Some kids were also asked who they would most like to have dinner with … Watch the video to learn what they answered:
Parents are the most important and influential people to their children. I hope this video both encouraged you in your job of raising your kids and inspired you to make time for shared meals. After all, few things protect kids more from risky behavior and nurtures the parent-child relationship as much as having breaking bread together.
Focus has even designed a free “Conversation Starters” smartphone app designed to help moms and dads invest in their families and raise thriving kids. It contains a variety of interesting topics and hundreds of questions to keep the conversation going, and can be personalized based on age and gender so you know that the questions are appropriate and relevant for your child.
Here’s to mealtime fun this weekend!
