My niece in law never believed in eating together. Her logic was why should one do that when each one feels hungry at different times. Seems logical but why is it then that scores of families believe in it and sit together atleast for one meal?
That is a place where I think everyone shares their day’s experience, children making their demands, parents pointing out what kids should do and not do – even sharing jokes and telling stories. That is a place where a family gets to bond with each other.
We as kids fought for that place next to our father who adored his kids. He would even share a part of what he ate with the one who sat next to his right. …………….
Does your family eat together?
