The family dinner is really a lost art. People are too busy. Working late, running to soccer practice, after school activities, grabbing a burger on the run, to busy to sit at the table together as a family.
We’ve made a commitment to sit together as a family for dinner 4 nights a week. That might not seem like enough but when trying to plan the schedule of 6 people, it’s a good start. We eat together more than we don’t.
Take a look at your dinner schedule for the last week. How often was the whole family (that lives under the same roof) together for dinner? If you’re not at home for meals together, your lives are out of balance. It’s time to emphasize what is important. Commit to the 4 out 7 goal. You’ll be glad you did!
