We all need to talk to each other, and recent studies have shown that children who eat dinner with their families several times a week are much more likely to do well in school and life.
But all the more so, modern living makes this quite challenging. Adults are working more hours than ever, and children today are so tightly programmed and they have quantities of homework that far outweight what I had as a child. How does one bring everybody together?
One such evening can be Friday night. Everybody should have Shabbat dinner together with the family. But one night a week is surely not enough. Make time for family dinners - your children need you.
