Reason For Learning
Over the past 15 years, research has shown what parents have known for a long time: Sharing a fun family meal is good for the spirit, brain and health of all family members. Recent studies link regular family meals with the kinds of behaviours that parents want for their children: higher academic results, resilience and self-esteem. Additionally, family meals are linked to lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, eating disorders and depression. Through open conversation parents can help their children learn the roles of managing a house and teach them to be active in the decision making process.
