Invite your children to the dinner table – for their sake.

We all should read “A Good Talk.”  Daniel Menaker said, “conversation should be easy, and not in the least dogmatic; it should have the spice of wit.”  Reading this New York Times article, The Life (and Death) of the Party, and Menaker’s book reminds me how afraid I am for the futures of young people that only know how to text or email to talk.

What will they do when they are invited to a dinner party some day?  They will be the “death” of the party.  As Ronald Reagan said, “all great change in America happens at the dinner table.”  So parents, invite your children to have dinner with you at the table and start the change.

Best regards,
