How to Plan Weekly Family Dinners | Find A Nanny

How to Plan Weekly Family Dinners | Find A Nanny:

"Dedicating one night of the week to a shared family meal around the dinner table is a great way to reconnect, share the events of your week and spend time together after a hectic week of rushing from one activity to the next. In fact, it can even be good for everyone’s health! The University of Florida has published research indicating that family dinners are linked to a lower risk of substance abuse, increased chances of finishing high school, a diminished risk of obesity and better eating habits. Planning your family dinner and making attendance compulsory may not always be popular in the beginning, especially if you have older children. Eventually, even reluctant tweens and teens will begin participating actively in conversations and family rituals."
