Description

Gives you something positive and unifying to talk about

When your family is gathered around the dining table, there are a wide variety of things you can talk about. Your kids can talk about gossip at school. You can gripe about work. Your wife or husband can gossip. This kind of talk is actually kind of empty. If anything, this kind of talk doesn’t really build up your family and reduces everyone into petty gossips. If you want to talk about stuff that actually encourages family members and reminds them that you all care about what you’re doing, talk about your different arts and crafts activities. Not only does doing this bring home the message that you care about each other loud and clear, this also gives you an opportunity to encourage each other. This is especially important for kids. They need to know they are valued. They need to know that what they’re doing, their successes, and their challenges are important to you. Simply talking about their arts and crafts activities can achieve these objectives.
