You make Me Laugh
Every family has that one person who makes everyone laugh! Since laughing has the proven ability to reduce stress, according to LifeHack.org it is a great way to enjoy your family mealtime. Use these conversation-starting questions to jumpstart a humorous family discussion.
Who is the funniest family member and why?
As you entertain the responses from around the table make sure that all members are honored. Do not allow your family to lampoon one another in the name of fun. We usually recommend not responding right away after you ask the question but to protect the feelings of everyone involved it is important to remember the golden rule in this instance. Nobody enjoys being made fun of even if they have a great sense of humor.
What is the best Mom/Dad joke you have ever heard?
I am the goofy one in our parenting team but Bill is known for bringing a serious story home that ends up unraveling into hilarity as we all realize it was a ruse all along. Enjoy listening to your children share how they see you and be encouraged if you bring laughter into your home.
What makes you laugh?
Get ready for some mayhem! Laughing has many positive effects and you have just encouraged your family to enjoy the moment. The act of laughing actually stimulates health by expanding the lungs and oxygenating your body on a cellular level. Watch your family interact and get healthier on many levels at the same time. That is worthwhile!
As the giggling winds down be sure to let your family know how much you have enjoyed this conversation. Ask them how they have enjoyed it, too. Remember, a family that eats together will laugh together and be healthier! That is good enough news to make you laugh!
