5LittleMonkeys Posted November 27, 2011 Share Posted November 27, 2011 (edited) I was going to make a poll but ... I'm feeling lazy so I'll just ask. If you are having a get together with another family either at your home or their's (I'm not talking Junior's birthday party or something specifically geared to the dc. I'm talking dinner or coffee with another family.) and dinner or coffee is over with and the adults are sitting down to visit with each other, do you... 1. Let everyone say hello and chat a bit and then send the dc off to play so the adults can chat. For the most part they don't need to be part of the adult conversation, and interrupting\interjecting is not acceptable unless they are invited into the conversation. 2. Let the dc hang out with the adults and conversation needs to revolve around topics the dc can hear and participate in. They still need to be polite and not interrupt or monopolize the conversation. 3. Think that the dc learn by listening to and participating in adult discussions. If a dc wants to interject and practice his conversational skills then the adults need to be accepting of that and stop their own discussions and listen to what the dc are saying. 4.
