Tip of the Week: Year 3!
at the Family Table
Raising kids is hard work. Research shows significant benefits for families that eat together at least three times a week. Talking around the family table, even talking about those topics that can be tough to discuss, is essential for our families’ success. Game nights, meals, snacks and smiles, maybe even a few tears can all be found at the family table.
Over the next year, we will be bringing you the family table hints you love, but we will also be discussing how to talk about the following “tough” topics at the family table:
- Nutrition and healthy eating
- Snacking or how often to eat
- Tobacco or alcohol use or abuse
- Drug use, including prescription drug abuse
- Teen parties
- Dating guidelines
- Suicide or suicide prevention
We would love to have your feedback! If you have specific questions about these topics, or would like to see us discuss something in particular, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we closed out the second year of the Family Table project, we celebrated last Friday at Fort4Fitness celebration dinner Friday, September 27, 2013.
