photoA few years ago, I purchased this little toy named Gabbit because I wanted to get my family talking.

When you press a button, you hear a question.  You answer the question and then pass it along to a family member.

Ethan got the question, “If you could spend a day with anyone in history, who would it be and what would you do?

I loved his answer.

“I would spend the day with Jesus and take Him on Star Tours at Disneyland!”

Can you picture it?  My fourth grader and Jesus having the time of their lives on Star Tours.  Maybe Jesus would be the rebel spy on board?

Gabbit is a great way to get your kids talking.  Most kids love the attention and get excited when it’s finally their turn to answer a question.  Not only do you get to know your kids better, your kids learn how to listen to others.

I looked up the Gabbit toy and it’s going to be somewhat challenging to find a place that sells it now.  BUT, there’s good news!

You can download the app for free for you iPhone or Android here.  Just scroll down until you see GABBIT.

Studies show that families who have at least one faith conversation a week are much stronger and stick together longer.  Gabbit makes it easy to gab with hundreds of family questions at the push of a button.

Whether you use the Gabbit app or pick scraps of paper out of a hat with questions written on them, just get talking!

When your children are in elementary school or younger, they want to talk to you.  Use this window of time to have many conversations with your kids so when they become teenagers, they will be used to talking with you about many subjects.

Get your family talking…if you don’t know where to start, I’d recommend using Gabbit to get the ball rolling.
