Eat meals with family

In Japan, where I currently live, some people think it is not important to eat meals with family. However, I definitely disagree with the idea that it is not important for family to regularly eat their meal together. To give the most rational explain to my answer, I will present some clear reasons and examples through my experience below.

First of all, eating foods with family broaden people’s horizons. Eating together gives them very unique opportunities to talk with their family, and they can realize that their view is somewhat limited through talking with others. It is because they can notice that other people have different opinions and views. By realizing that, they can also deepen their perspective and thought. To take my experience of discussing with others as an example, when I was a junior at the University of Tokyo, in Japan, I took an English presentation class. I discussed a group work with my classmates in the class. At first, there were a lot of opinions and conflicts, but in the end we compiled good points of each opinions and made a presentation. By doing that, we got the highest grade, because our presentation was argued from various aspects. If I had not talked with classmates and listened to their opinions, I could not have deepened my perspective and gotten the grade score. As the example above illustrates, eating foods with family broaden people’s horizons.

In addition, if people eat their meals with family, they can save money. By using such extra money, they can also challenge their dream. To give personal example, I am studying English hard now, because I have a dream to go to an American university to get an MBA next year. However, getting an MBA costs me a lot of money, such as tuition, rent, living expense, and so on. Thus, I have to cut the expense as much money as I can. Last year, I lived alone away from my family, which cost me much. Hence, I decided to live together with my family. Then, I have had breakfast every day with my family, because my mother is good at cooking. The last day, I realized I had a lot of deposit in my account. I could have saved money through eating with my family. Thanks to this money, I can challenge my dream. As the example above shows, eating foods with family allows people to save money.

In conclusion, for the reasons mentioned above, I absolutely believe that it is important for family to eat their meal together every day.
