Educating Families About the Benefits of Family Meals

Tip of the Week: Teens Enjoy Family Meals, Too!

Parents of teens know that often teens give the impression that they don’t want to spend time with their family – but a new study shows that’s not true. Three-quarters of teens asked about family meals said the interaction and the togetherness were the best part of the meal. Teens who spent more time with their parents were half as likely to use alcohol and half as likely to say they expected to try drugs. So while schedules (and attitudes) may make it harder to get teens to the family table, remember that they may be enjoying your company a lot more than they let on!
