How to Get the Most Out of Family Dinners

August 20, 2012 | The Main Dish | 0 comments

Part 7 in a series: Christine Carter and bestselling author Kelly Corrigan talk about how to get the most out of family dinners.

Last week’s video takes a look at the benefits of dinnertime and what it is we should model during dinner.  This video that will follow gives you the tools to make it happen.  Even if you’ve only got 20 minutes and one parent available, you CAN teach your kids dinnertime rituals that will make them happier people.  Seriously!
