This is part six of my ongoing feature of President Benson's address to mothers.
"Be Together at Mealtimes. Sixth, take time to be together at mealtimes as often as possible. This is a challenge as the children get older and lives get busier. But happy conversation, sharing of the day’s plans and activities, and special teaching moments occur at mealtime because mothers and fathers and children work at it."
Ezra Taft Benson, To the Mothers in Zion, address given at a fireside for parents, 22 February 1987.
