I’m tired of hearing short, one-word answers from “How was your day?”… Where can I find ideas for effective conversation starters? How can I foster a greater communion within my family? What are some ideas for building a stronger family connection? I feel lonely, what could be some contributing factors? What are the habits of lonely millennials? How can I foster a sense of ‘new’-ness in my Catholic faith? What are some conversation-starters to bring to family time? What is the impact of a guided conversation around the dinner table?
[Guided conversations at the dinner table] is easier said than done! In the excitement of dinner, everyone is real chit-chatty and interrupts. Even I forget the rules. –Kari
It takes effort to not fall into the same track of conversations and the litany of yes, no, “fine” answers.
The Currans discuss the impact and the rules for communion-building conversations at the dinner table. Kari references a loneliness survey and shares ideas for intentional, guided conversations. Tom talks about the concepts of ‘genuine vs. novel’ and reminds listeners about Mother’s Day coming up!
