Today’s question is “How do you connect as a family?” With schedules picking up in the fall, how do you stay close?
For the Savage family, dinner around the kitchen table is a huge priority. We try to sit down, enjoy a meal, and share about our day nearly every night. We turn off the tv, ban cell phones, turn the lights off in the rest of the house, and make where we are in the dining room the focus of what we’re doing.
Another way our family has been connecting is with a regular conference call. With three married children living in different parts of the country, it’s hard to keep us all connected. I schedule a date everyone can connect and go to www.freeconferencecall.com and secure a call-in code. Everyone, including spouses, calls in at the appointed time and we have a 10-way conference call to connect with one another. It’s been a nice way to have one conversation to communicate what’s going on in our lives instead of trying to connect individually with everyone and share the same thing.
So what about you? How does your family stay connected?
