Informed Families/Florida Family Partnership is teaming up with Family Table Time to help families bond, communicate better and deal with difficult scenarios.

Back to school time is a stressful time for many families. With schools reopening for the first time since March or continuing remote learning, many families are more anxious than usual. Family Table Time’s unique, dinner table conversation starter toolkit can help families better navigate this stressful time together. Conversation starters for the month of August include Back to School and Fears & Anxiety.

“In today’s society, parents have little time to spend with their children, making it crucial that the time they do spend is in the most effective way possible. It’s important to have an outlet for communication in order to promote a healthy parent child relationship and strengthen the overall bond of the family. Family Table Time is specifically designed to teach other parents how they can reach their goals of having an effective family unit,” said Neal Kimball, Family Table Time creator.

Informed Families wants to deliver this valuable tool to parents and families that understand the importance of prevention.

“It’s about helping parents and kids to safely talk about anything – and building family connections. Now more than ever families should take the time to share meals together while the country is still dealing with the social, emotional and mental effects of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Peggy Sapp, President and CEO of Informed Families/Florida Family Partnership.
