At our house, I want mealtimes to be fun and educational centering around good conversation. So, I came up with another plan to help - Dinner Rocks. Both boys have to close their eyes and choose a rock. If you get a colored one, you have to give a compliment or say something you love about everyone sitting at the table. If the rock has a word, we then discuss the meaning and ways we can implement it in our daily lives. It is definitely helping in proactive training! If someone chooses "verse," they quote a favorite. Same idea with the "song." "Blessing" is something they appreciate, etc. I had intended it to be done during our family meal together, but I find the boys doing it several times during the day. They love it! It is so sweet to hear their little compliments and ideas about things.
