I read a recent Better Homes and Gardens article, which said the research is clear: Family dinners are good for kids. But if you are not in the habit, it can be hard to make it happen. Thanks to The Family Dinner Project, an online community started by a bunch of like-minded Harvard folks. On their site, thefamilydinnerproject.org, you can find tips to get started (think small and don't obsess on dinner---maybe breakfast is better for your family), a log to track progress, a list of one-line conversation starters, mealtime games, and of course, menus. Genius!
