The Lost Art of Conversation-When Technology at the dinner table is fabulous

conversation family time quality time relationships

It was one of the most interesting dinner conversations...and my whole family had fun and participated! My husband, 12-year-old son, 10-year-old daughter, and I were enjoying each other’s company - “Wow!” I thought, “This is what it’s all about!”

Too often, people at social gatherings are either playing a game on their phones or checking their social media. Why is that? Kids stare at their phones because they are “bored.”  

If we asked good questions and then listened, then asked more QBQ – question behind the question - we’d learn more about what makes each other tick. 

Isn’t it great when someone is interested in what you have to say and truly listens?

Sometimes we can feel stuck in conversation and default to asking the standard: “How was your day? What’s new?” 

You know, the questions that receive one-word answers or superficial responses.  

When that happens, leverage your search engine to create an opportunity to truly connect and foster relationships.

 Here are search ideas:

  •         Ice breaker questions for families
  •         Fun get to know you questions
  •         Questions to spark conversation & connection
  •         Meaningful questions for couples who want to get closer

Try it! 

Let’s revitalize the lost art of conversation. It's way more fun than everyone sitting around like zombies in a trance staring at their devices, don’t ya think? 

When we proactively connect during a window of downtime, we teach our children the communication skills that will get them, as well as all of us, ahead in life. 

When was the last time you had a really good dinner conversation?
