With school underway, finding the time to sit down to a family meal can be a bit of a challenge. Research shows that some of the benefits of eating together are: better communication, better school performance, and of course better nutrition.
One of our cotillion alumni wrote a persuasive school essay on making good choices to be the best person you can be. One of her findings was that “a young adult who has family dinners at least 3 times a week is less likely to find themselves in bad situations”. (Thanks for sharing Emma!)
With all of the challenges that school, homework, athletics, and other extracurricular activities bring; take a bit of time to schedule in family dinner. You’ll be glad you did. … and don’t forget to leave the cell phones in another room so you can give 100% of your attention to everyone at the table.
