Eating out can be a small treat or a big celebration.

Going out to eat can be a treat for a special event, like a birthday, graduation or holiday. But it can also be a reward for good behavior or a way to acknowledge your kids’ efforts. You don’t need to splurge on a fancy meal. Just going out for ice cream could be enough to show them you’ve noticed the hard work they’ve done at school, at art class or on the sports field.

Eating Out as a Family

When kids have trouble with attention, self-control and social skills, eating out as a family can be challenging. But whether it’s a nice meal or a quick bite, dining out has real benefits, too.

Many kids don’t like trying new things, especially food. And those with sensory or flexibility issues may find it extra difficult. But it’s good for kids to have different experiences. If your child won’t order anything new for herself, see if she’ll have just one bite of your dish. Low-stakes opportunities like this will help her learn that it’s important keep an open mind. You can do this at home, too, when you cook new things.

Eating out can improve communication skills

The meals you eat at restaurants usually last longer than the ones you have at home. So conversations may be longer, too. This can give your child a chance to work on her conversation skills and learn new words. In fact, according to theFamily Dinner Project, dinner conversation can help kids build their vocabularies. At a restaurant or at home, try to kick off a longer conversation with a question like, “What was the best part of your day today?”

The Loft Gallery

The Loft Gallery was founded by Marcia Weidler and Jackie Paetzold in 1986, and is comprised of 20 professional artists. Artists are selected according to the quality of their work, educational backgrounds and experience with their particular media. Their shared dedication in organizing a co-op, which could present their work in the professional setting it deserved, led to the opening of the gallery with a handful of local artists. Special awards and recognition in their respective fields are also considered. A variety of media is represented, including watercolors, oils, woodcuts, pastels, acrylics, photography, original prints, collagraphs, lithographs, stained glass and pottery. Styles follow traditional lines from detailed representational work to soft impressionism.

Each of the artists has brought a personal clientele to the gallery, which has its own carefully established reputation and patronage. Press releases and publicity are sent on a regular basis and open houses are held monthly.
