#AtTheTable Tonight

March 24th, 2015     By Boys Town Contributor

At The Table, Family, Mealtime

​Teachable moments can come from a wide variety of sources, including other parents. From time to time parents write blogs for us that we think you will find interesting, useful, or entertaining. Please enjoy this post from a fellow parent. 

Tonight — and every other night — I am committed to having dinner together with my family. Because my kids are still young, I am lucky that their extracurricular activities are minimal and I can schedule them around family dinners; but, I know that won’t last forever. I know family dinnertime can be challenging when sports, music lessons, scouts and other activities start to fill the early evening. But it’s important to make family dinners a priority. They allow us time to hear about each other’s day, give thanks for the good things in our lives and spend quality time together. I cherish these moments and I will continue to make sure my children understand the importance of family mealtime.

You should too! Start tonight by joining us at Boys Town — along with ConAgra Foods and Godfather’s Pizza — as we sit down #AtTheTable with our families and enjoy a meal together. The seeds you sow by starting a dinnertime tradition tonight will reap rewards well into the future — I promise! (Read more about how our family makes mealtime memorable).
