I really enjoyed your idea of giving each family member 10 pennies before dinner, lunch, etc. to try and eliminate or decrease the amount of interuptions during conversation. This type of game teaches individuals turn taking skills and it enables them to be good active listeners, which is how all individuals need to be when speaking to others. By taking turns speaking and letting each other finish his/her sentence makes the conversation more smooth and pleasant. I think all families should incorporate a fun activity like this in their household to teach turn-taking skills!
