Family Meals – Sitting together

I’ve noticed that the kids really don’t want to sit down to dinner with us.  Many times my hubby and I eat alone at a boring table without any ceremony, my daughter sits in her high chair for a little while and then wants OUT, and my son wants to sit in front of the TV and eat (which REALLY worries me).

I had an idea that we should bring in a low table and some firm pillows and eat Japanese style on the floor!  I am excited to try this concept and see how the kids react.  I would love for us to be able to eat in peace, no TV, and the kids could walk around and get up and down as they please.

We’re always trying to get the kids to do like we do, when maybe we can find harmony if we meet them at their level.  I’ll report back and let you know how it goes!
