The holidays are a wonderful time to bond as a family, and what better time than over dinner! Kick off great conversations tonight by asking each family member one question about themselves. For example: "If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?" Or "What qualities do you look for in a friend?" You may learn a lot more than you expected!
Check out this article for five additional ways to inspire meaningful conversations with your family over dinner.

We actually try to do this already. We asked this question last night, if you could be any animal real or imagined what would you be?. My oldest said a deer with wings and my youngest said a barking chicken.

We usually talk about how their day was at school, what they did, played, ate at lunch. How close they are to reaching goals and everything in between, there's also some silly conversations with my 5 yr old lol
