Do you share meals together as a family? In the always-wired world that we live in, families that take the time to turn off the devices, and turn on the conversation at the family dining table reap multiple benefits!
Research has proven that families who eat 3 or more meals together at the family dining table have great conversations with their children. These conversations at the family dining table lead to children experiencing less stress, better grades, less drug and alcohol problems, less teen-age pregnancies and many other benefits.
The Washington Post reports that for young children, dinner as a family boosts their vocabulary more than reading together aloud. While for older children, those who share 5 to 7 meals a week with their family are twice as likely to earn A’s in school.
The benefits of spending time together as a family are much too important to let social media and TV get in the way. The tradition of family time together at the dining table has held strong for thousands of years – and it’s never too late to start.
