Mary DeMuth carefully and cleverly shares, in a very quick read, why the dinner table invites intimate conversation and why conversational parents are parents whose children grow up trusting them and staying in communication. She includes fascinating conversation-starters that go way beyond "So how was your day?" The 150 questions will allow kids and their parents to explore their aspirations, their fears, their philosophies on life - and believe it or not, even a five-year-old has a philosophy on life. All you need to get a conversation going at the table is to something to talk about that matters, and there are 150 conversations here just waiting to happen.
Just when I thought dinner time was made only for silly banter, Mary hands us "150 Quick Questions to Get Your Kids Talking". Filled with thought provoking questions to draw the family's hearts together, this will be a definate recommendation to the moms I invest in. - Lynn Cowell, speaker with Proverbs 31 Ministries and author of "His Revolutionary Love"
