Family meals aren’t just for dinner anymore.
Let’s face it, no matter how hard you try, life interferes with dinnertime. Dad works late, kids have practice, Mom’s going out to a networking meeting. So, if you know you have a crazy week of evening activities ahead look at your planner and pencil in mealtimes at any time of the day. Sunday brunch, Saturday lunch, Wednesday breakfast. Just schedule 4-5 times a week where everyone will be sitting together and sharing. Mark it on the central family calendar so everyone knows they are expected to be present at those times.
So, what are you waiting for. Go ahead and schedule those family meals for the week. If you are uber organized, you can even plan the meal ahead of time and have the groceries bought and bagged. Whoa! I know that’s crazy talk but try it one week and see if it makes your life a little easier.
