Is mealtime at your house filled with beautiful experiences and your family around the table enjoying conversations? If you answered with a resounding no – then this is the episode for you!

“They are not going to remember what you made, and if they had hot dogs for dinner or if they had a five-course meal; I think that they’re going to remember the conversations and the times that they were heard.” – Laura Hernandez

  1. Hello, Deana and Kira – I just listened to your interview with Laura and loved the suggestions she made about establishing talk time at the meal table and staying on top of the myriad of opportunities to connect with each other. It was very sweet to hear about that survey where kids picked their families for dinner time options. Thanks for the informative conversation.
