Praise for “Home for Dinner”

This transformative book will change your family’s life for the better.   With persuasive research and delightful stories, Dr. Fishel offers solutions that any parent can put into place at home, around the table. You must read Home for Dinner…and so should every family therapist in America.

Michael Thompson, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and New York Times best-selling co-author of Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Lives of Boys

There are magical opportunities for tenderness, courage, healing, laughter– and almost everything else it means to be human– when the people we love come together to eat the food we love. This remarkably wise, engaging, lovely book is an invaluable guide to all of us in creating this magic.  Give yourself the pleasure of reading it and join The Family Dinner Project.

Richard Weissbourd, Faculty Director of the Human Development and Psychology Program, Harvard Graduate School of Education and author, The Parents We Mean to Be

Home for Dinner offers a feast of insights, hands-on advice, and mouth-watering recipes that will equip readers to turn the necessity of eating into an opportunity for growing family relationships, building children’s intelligence and social skills, and nourishing healthy bodies and minds. Research-based, story-sprinkled, and supremely practical—an enlightening read.
