30 Family Dinner Question #4jar-of-questions-post

in a  free pdf format.

They are in a simple form to represent how simple getting to know your family can bring you closer together.

My family and I have been doing this for a year and I have learned and laughed as we answered some of the questions.  You don’t have to have kids to do this…how well do you think you know your spouse? your parents? your friends?

Some of the questions are silly some are serious.  It spurs on ideas and thoughts to make you and your family think.

Here is the link to all the FAMILY DINNER QUESTIONS

      Thank you so much for these! I printed off your first 3 sets, and I am so excited to add more! Our kids are absolutely loving doing this at dinner, and look forward to them every night! They love the trivia questions, so we try to do 1 trivia and 1 thought provoking each time!

      Thank you! We just started this last month and it's a big hit during meals! My girls beg us to do more than one question/night - it's been a lot of fun!

      My kids love this ritual. We don't always gt to eat together with our busy sports and dance schedules but when we do, everyone gets to pull a question. They actually ask, "Are we all eating together tonight so we can do questions?"

      How fun! Having 3 teenage boys in the house, we often struggle with a "good" conversation.
      Thanks for sharing these!

      Keep them coming! My kids insist on doing several every night...so we're constantly having to some up w/new ones! And I've passed the idea along to friends who have also started up a dinner jar!

      this is super cute. for our family, we need a quiet jar. we are always loud and talking way too much. ;)
      I need this for my hubby and me. When it is just us, no kids, it is so hard to think of what to say sometimes!

      Love, love, love this idea and plan on printing these to use with my three young children. However, I am a bit bothered by #21 and the use of the word "retarded" (see the following from your list)

      21. Einstein couldn't speak fluently until he was how old?
      Nine! His parents thought he might be retarded

      My children are taught at school - and home - that this is not a nice word. We do not describe people with that word. In school, they all signed a pledge to ban this word from the school! I cannot imagine answering this question to my children and reading that word outloud. Isn't there a more appropriate word?
