Eat meals as a family

“My work as a carpenter has always allowed me to spend extra time during the day with Cherith and the kids. I deliberately chose things that way. I often get home for lunch or call in at other times during the day between jobs.” – Patrick Gangemi, builder

  • Try to find one meal during the day you can eat as a family. Perhaps breakfast if dinner is a problem
  • Make it a priority to be home for that meal. Be sure that you sit together around the table
  • Use the time for each person to talk about what is going on in their lives. Be sure both parents share as well as the children. Include everyone in the conversation
