Table Talk for Ch-Ch-Changes

We would like to encourage you to share a family meal and Gracieland together.  Each week we will be posting some discussion starters that you can share with your family.  Share the webstrip with your kids, grab a plate, pull up a chair, and talk.

Ask your child:

Do you think Gracie did her homework?  Why or Why not?

What does it mean when you say, “it was my fault”?

Why is it so difficult to change something you have being doing for a long time?

What did you notice about the responses in Mass recently?  What is your favorite?  What is the most difficult to remember?

Do you think Gracie’s teacher is nice?  Who is your favorite teacher?  Why?
