Last week I shared one of my favorite ways to get my family talking at the dinner table. Roses and Thorns is a great method to use to connect with your family and find out what is going on in their lives. I have found that when I come home after a long day at work, it is easy to throw dinner on the table, gobble it down, and then quickly excuse the children to do whatever it is that they want to do. Although it makes my life “easier” I prefer to have more of a connection with my family. They are some pretty cool people and I enjoy their company. Having a close relationship with them is important to me.
