Gathering everyone around the table these days is a challenge in itself. Talking to your children about tough issues can also present it’s own challenges also. Well, when you combine the goodness of Mom’s homecooked meal and family sitting around the table, you are bound to have a great time!
The Family Honor Plate wants to change the way you gather around the dinner table. Conversation is key and recognizing the choices and good character that each child shows should be honored and celebrated. We all teach our children how to make good choices, this is another way to encourage more of the same behavior. Parents can show their children how their choices help to develop good character. When your children models good behavior and displays positive character traits – follow up with encouraging words and praise.
- 9 Character Traits – The Fruits of the Spirit
- Great for children as young as 2 years old and above
- Rewarding good behavior, choices, attitudes
- Celebrate the child’s character and good choices – relate the good behavior and character traits
About the cards:
Every question is followed up with “Why?” to take everyone’s answers to a deeper more intimate level. That’s where the magic is and the real conversation starts. So now when even a simple question such as…”What is your favorite dessert?” for example, rather than someone answering “Apple Pie” and then moving on to the next person, the whole family gets to walk down memory lane because it reminds them of Grandma Smith who always made apple pies with them when they came to visit.” Her house always smelled of fresh baked pies and she gave the best hugs when we walked in the door.”
Communication is the key to connecting, building and maintaining healthy relationships. When we are raise our children to be confident in their ability to communicate with others and get their point across, situations are less stressful and they have better outcomes.
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up the box. Look how nice the kit arrived. The package was wrapped in paper and delivered in a box with a cute Thank You sticker!

My boys and I had a great time painting the plate together. We made a few mistakes along the way. We wiped the paint off and started again before baking.
Here is our finished product with the Let’s Talk Table Thyme Discussion Cards. They look forward to being chosen to use the plate.
We had fun answering the questions from the Let’s Talk Table Thyme Cards. The kids stopped what they were doing and participated in the family discussion. They were asking for more questions. Fun and engaging. A great way to ask the tough questions in front of a captive audience.
The Family Honor Plate makes a great holiday gift. For more information visit HonorPlate.com
