One of the things that was great at getting conversations going while our kids were growing up was having a TV show we watched together.
For us, it started with Little House On The Prairie. It was clean and great for discussions about friendships, marriage, people not treating each other well, death, faith, and the list goes on and on.
We didn’t just watch, but took the time to talk about what we were experiencing on the show. We asked the kids questions and sat back and listened to their answers.
As the kids got older, we continued the tradition by having age appropriate shows we watched together. Home Improvement with Tim Allen was another one that we enjoyed.
Go ahead and make some popcorn and get the conversations started.
