Do you have a sibling? I do. I have one sibling named Emily. Is it really hard to get along with them sometimes? Yes. I know that nobody’s perfect and that in most families, siblings struggle to get along. That’s why I was happy to see the Family Honor Plate.

Family Honor Plate
On the plate, it shows virtues, which I like, but I also liked the table discussions that came with it too.
Here are the materials that came in the box for us to put together our Honor Plate:
We took a little while to read the instructions and then finally came up with an idea for our Family Honor Plate…
In this photo below, we were working on our plate. I did the grass and the blue sky, and Emily did the sun and the lightened blue sky.
Some notes about the plate from the creator:
1) Mom and Dad – Be the example. Be the role-model. Our children are watching us and learning from us.
2) Be on the lookout for good choices and attitudes and point them back to the virtues and character it shows.
3) Celebrate their character by presenting a meal on the plate for good choices that are made.
Message of our plate: My sister and I made a plate of a clear blue sky with a sun and green grass. I thought it was a clue when we started to be positive. Sometimes in life we struggle with that, and I thought it was a great message. And remember, it’s the connection, the joy that brings us together at the table.
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.
