What's For Dinner?
Make dinner time, family time!
Mind-stretching brain games and conversation starters. It's the perfect opportunity for sharing stories, building knowledge, strengthening character, and having fun!
Do you have all the facts every time you make a decision? Probably not. Throughout the day most of us make many inferences. We make a decision based on what we think is most likely to happen.
We leave home without a coat when we hear birds singing out the window and sunbeams slanting through the curtains. Could a storm move in later in the day? Possibly, of course.
Coming home late from work, a mom might stop to pick up dinner because she expects everyone to be hungry when she arrives home. Another family member may have fixed dinner, but she infers that it is not likely.
Think of a time when your actions were based, in part, on inference.
It's a nice sunny day. I'll wear my new hat with the ostrich feather. Let's hope it doesn't get windy!
