Before living rooms there were parlors.  Quaint places with seating arranged to foster conversations.  Try putting down the smart phones down, turn off the television, and have meaningful conversations with each other.  You will be surprised what you will learn about your friends and family.  Be a good listener, participate in the conversation by asking open ended questions.  Brew your favorite coffee or tea and add a few biscuits and you will have dialed up quality time.  Seating should be comfortable for at least and hour or two.
