Henderson parents have to juggle schedules in order to help their kids use their time to do things that will help them be healthy and successful. Prioritizing is the name of the game for most Phoenix, Las Vegas and Portland families. With all this competition for your child’s time, don’t discount the powerful benefits from simple family rituals such as family meal time.
Studies have shown that kids who have frequent family dinners gain the following benefits:
1. Their grades improve
2. The meals they eat are healthier
3. They are less likely to try cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana
4. They enjoy an increase in family communication
5. These children are less likely to suffer from childhood obesity
If your family dinners are less frequent than you would like them to be, here are some tips. Start by setting a small goal, like sitting down for dinner twice a week, and then add days on after that. Next, involve the kids by letting them help plan and prepare the meals and set the table. Lastly, always make mealtime a technology-free zone: no TV or phones allowed!
And remember, even if you’re in a rush and have to pick up dinner at a local Phoenix, Portland, and Henderson restaurant, take the time to sit down together to eat. Your family will still enjoy many of these benefits.
