Eating out can be an event

“Dinner together has not been a big thing for us as a family. I guess it’s partly because we eat out frequently. Because I work on weekends, Monday and Tuesday evenings are my ‘weekend’, so we go out and eat on those nights, and I think they are our special family dinner time.” – Dennis Cometti, sports commentator.

  • What is important is regular time together. It doesn’t matter if the meal is at home or a restaurant.
  • As long as you have the ability to talk with one another, that is the most important thing.
