Item Description...
Mealtime doesn't have to be mum time. This deck of question cards will have parents and kids talking in no time! How was school today? O.K. ... What did you do? Not much. ... Anything new to tell me? No. Tired of mealtime conversations that stop before they start, where you feel like you and your kids must be speaking totally different languages? Do you wish that, just for once, you could actually get your kids to open up a bit and communicate with you, and that time together at the table could actually be fun? The next time you find yourself wishing for such a utopian scenario, simply open the Meal Box, pull out a question card, and let the conversation begin! Best-selling question-book author Bret Nicholaus and best-selling family-book author Tom McGrath have collaborated to create The Meal Box the perfect antidote to family dinnertime drudgery. The Meal Box contains 54 cards, each one featuring a creative question guaranteed to get parents and kids talking like never before! The questions, such as If you could have the voice of any famous person, whose voice would you have? , is sure to engage everyone in the family. The reverse side of each card features a quick Food for Family Thought tip from Tom McGrath. The tip helps families apply the question or their answers to their everyday experiences, while reminding them of the sometimes subtle but significant role faith plays in their lives. Although The Meal Box may be conveniently small in size, it s huge in its ability to bring kids and parents together. So set the table, settle in for supper, and get some great conversations cookin !

Publishers Description
Designed for all ages, "The Meal Box "is guaranteed to be a humongous hit around the table. Each of 52 cards features a question designed to spice up conversations and get parents and kids talking like never before; the reverse side offers a practical tip to help parents apply the general theme of the question to their family's life of faith.
Sample front: If you could build a private bridge or tunnel that would take you directly from your home to any place at all, what would it connect you to?
Sample back: Prayer is one of the surest ways we connect with God. At any time, in any circumstance, you can talk to God heart-to-heart. Make prayer a daily habit in your home.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A GREAT Product. Even got the young adults talking ;-)  Aug 3, 2009
I had almost despaired of getting meaningful conversation out of my 18,20 and 22 year olds at dinner. They were initially skeptical about starting the Meal Box, but very quickly became engaged in considering the questions and hearing from their siblings and us parents.

My only concern is that we've been through most of the cards now, and I need more ;-).

It will be given as a gift to all MY siblings for their families at Christmas - a GREAT product.

Thanks for helping break through the bored mealtime attitude of the typical young adults.

BTW, excellent also for younger children; we just selected ones that worked for our ages.
