Does your family talk around the dinner table?
Do the adults talk about current events, plans for the family, find out what the kids are interested in?
What does your family talk about? Do you think you learned a lot from your parents while growing up just by being present during for their conversations? Did they explain “adult matters” if you asked about what they were discussing? Or, dismiss your questions as not something for you to worry about?
Did you grow up watching TV during meals and not talking much at all?
Are you happy with the amount of time your family discussed/discusses topics of the day? Could be your family while you were growing up, or if you have children you can talk about the discussions you have with them. Or, both.
