Pizza and a Movie Night

Every Tuesday we have Pizza and a Movie Night. A different family member chooses the pizza and movie each week. The family member or “host” of the evening introduces the movie and tell why they choose it.

This teaches the kids how to express their thoughts in front of people

Teaches the rest of the siblings to try new things

learn how to be supportive and a gracious guest. The movie might not be something they are interested in but they learn to be a good guest, enjoy it because it makes another person you love happy. Respect others opinions and tastes.

It also give a great topic of conversion through out the week on everyone’s different opinions… learning to agree to disagree or find a common like it a great life skill
