"You need to be involved in a dinner table conversation every night, or most nights, where you sit and you listen...It's a 'How was your day? What went well today? Here, let me tell you about what happened with me and my boss. And they get to learn about the world understand how things are."

"Parents want to understand and get to know their kids and often we do that by asking them questions about how their day was and I think that parents are often disappointed by what they get over the dinner table. When they say 'So how school?' Kid says 'fine,' and then you say, 'Well, what did you do?' and they say 'nothing.'"
