Imagine your family gathered around the dinner table laughing and engaged as everyone takes a turn sharing their favorite memory of a past vacation, person in their lives they are grateful for or perhaps what their favorite thing to do on the weekend is. Now insert the question “Why?” to their responses and see the conversations go to a whole new level. This is the place where you find the magic behind the answers.
Table Thyme Discussion Cards will lead you and your family into memorable conversations where everyone has an opportunity to share their thoughts, memories or opinions. Some will learn how to even have an opinion. When we share with one another, relationships get stronger, trust is built and memories are created. You won’t always remember what you had for dinner but there will be conversations that you will never forget.
Table Thyme Discussion Cards will help your family learn to have and love healthy conversations. Your children will learn how to and become confident communicating with others and ultimately create a life that includes the following:
The importance of Communication Skills cannot be overstated!
The one thing children want and need most from their parents is their time and attention. Whether you are gathered around the dinner table, or making the most of carpool time, they love learning about their parents’ childhood, experiences, insights and opinions. Believe it or not they love to share the very same things with us.
Children thrive when they feel connected to and are a part of something…a family…a family who is there for each other.
Leave your Table Thyme set on your kitchen table as a constant reminder of the many topics just waiting to be discussed. Your family will learn interesting thought provoking things about each other that typically don't come up in a conversations, not to mention themselves.
As your children get older the issues will become critical and potentially life changing. If you’ve established a relationship of trust and communication (which also means listening) early on, you can look forward to your children coming to you with those matters. Start listening now so they will talk to you later!
A 20-year study by Duke University tracked more than 700 children from across the US between kindergarten and age 25 and found a significant correlation between their social skills as kindergartners and their success as adults two decades later.
The communication skills learned as a child are priceless as well as essential for success. Engage in regular fun family conversations so your children know how to communicate their thoughts and feelings creating a life of endless opportunities; both personally and professionally.
When your children get older you will be glad you have a relationship based on communication and sharing. Ask any parent of a teenager.

Communication is the key to building relationships and creating memories that last a lifetime!
Enjoy more than a year's worth of unique questions that will have your family sharing about everyday and unique topics, thoughts or memories that normally aren't brought up or even thought about.
Your family will learn how to articulate and share special memories, learn how to voice their opinion, and for some - how to even have an opinion.
Every question is followed up with "Why?" to take everyone's answers to a deeper level. That's where the magic is.
So now when asked..."What is your favorite dessert?" Rather than someone's answer of "Apple Pie", the whole family gets to walk down memory lane because their answer to "Why?" is it reminds them of Grandma Smith who always made apple pies with the them when they came to visit. Her house smelled of fresh baked pies when you walked in the door. This opens up unique memories for everyone in the family. Each member will get to enjoy a walk down memory lane with Grandma Smith. With this one simple question, the family has reached a new level of intimacy while bringing memories and the love for one another to life. And that was just one person's favorite desert. Wonder what the next person's favorite desert is and Why?
Sharing, listening and genuine laughter cultivates connection and stronger relationships within your family.
You may not remember what you made for dinner some of these nights, but there will be conversations that you will never forget.
