While we are socially distancing, it is a great time to eat at home as a family. Order carry-out or prepare a meal together as a family, then sit down together without distractions (no cell phones, no TV) and enjoy conversation. Conversation should be light and fun. Some ideas for conversation starters may include:
- If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
- What kind of job would you most like to have and why?
- If you could invite one person to eat dinner with you, who would that person be and why?
- Where would you most like to go on vacation and why?
These kinds of questions are open-ended and non-threatening – they can help your children engage in conversation.
