How many times have you read that dinnertime is supposed to be a wonderful occasion for togetherness and family bonding? Everyone chills out, enjoys one another's company, and shares humorous and engaging stories.
If suppertime at your house does not fit this picture, don't feel bad. You have lots and lots of company! The idea of suppertime may be a nice one, but the reality is often much different. Parents are tired from working all day and the kids are tired from school. Add a little sibling rivalry, a finicky eater (or two), and kids who don't want to sit still, and you've got a recipe for a disagreeable state of affairs.
