This month, we're talking about how to create more time for yourself and your family in ways that really make a difference. And we have been taking look at both morning & evening routines.
Well, today, I want to share a blog post I read last month, during my blogging challenge. Lori Ferguson, from PositiveThanksLiving.com, shared a study that offers questions you can use to create closer relationships. And I have already started using them with my son.
They would be perfect for using at dinner time or as part of your evening routine with your family.
In 1997 five researchers published a paper. It described an experiment they set up where strangers took turns asking each other 36 specific questions in exact order. At the end of the experiment, it was proven by feedback that these questions created a sense of closeness. In less than an hour, some of the former strangers even exchanged contact information to continue their budding relationship.
Lori includes all of the 3 sets of questions they used in the study and reading them, I can understand how they could be used to create closer relationships. With friends, with your spouse, and with your children. I highly recommend taking a look at them!
