Dining with Grandparents


With the decline of the family dinner has come a decline in the tradition of telling family stories, but the importance of sharing family history to children is not to be underestimated. Older members of a family (grandparents, uncles, aunts, et al) can play an integral role in improving a child’s self-esteem and sense of belonging by sharing family stories at the dinner table.

In an essay exclusive to, Laurie shares why the intergenerational connection is important to a family’s health and well-being, and why family stories need to be a part of the dinner ritual.

Please send the article to all the grandparents in your life, especially those not yet on Facebook.
