One Of The Family, by Frederick G. Cotman
Do you regularly share family mealtime together?
Time Health Magazine states:
“It’s in the teenage years that this daily investment [of eating together] pays some of its biggest dividends.
Studies show that the more often families eat together, the less likely kids are to smoke, drink, do drugs, get depressed, develop eating disorders and consider suicide, and the more likely they are to do well in school, delay having sex, eat their vegetables, learn big words and know which fork to use.
Family mealtime is about civilizing children. It’s about teaching them to be a member of their culture.”
