Breakfast and Supper should be family time. Breakfast is a time to talk with each other, give kisses and hugs and grant your family member a good day.
Supper should be an all inclusive family sit down and sup together. Talk about the day, homework, work and spending quality time with your family.
I know the world has changed. Cell phones are in the hands of everyone including our children. There is so much high tech in the world our families never talk to each other anymore. This is so sad.
It is time to change back to family time and actually talking to each other and making family plans to spend time with each other. Family values need to come back.
I realize that most people have different work times, school times and the children have sporting events to go to. Life goes by fast and the next thing you know you have lost touch with your family.
Since the days are so busy juggling family, work and school there needs to be one time during the early evening hours for the entire family to sit down together and have a meal together.
Talk with each other and find out if your family members are having a hard time with their day to day events. Talk about the work day, homework and talk about taking a picnic on the weekend. Laugh with each other and cry with each other.
We only get one family. Life is way too short to waste time talking on the telephone instead of talking with each other. Our children grow fast and you don't want to miss out on what they are doing.
Have a no cell phone zone - the dinner table. Talk with each other and bring back family values. You just might be surprised at how much you will learn from each other and your family will become a closer unit.
Family time is frugal time. Please do not miss out on what is going on with your family. Talking to each other and having family discussions draw families closer together. Be frugal and always make time for the entire family to sit down and talk every day.
