To create and maintain a happy and healthy family dynamic:
- Build your family around healthy morals, values and talk about them often.
- Don’t just spend time together, play together.
- Set expectations for family members clearly and consistently.
- Treat each other with kindness and respect – always.
- If you need it, ask for help from a good family counselor.
What if something as simple as a meal together could keep your family happier, healthier, and more connected? Studies have shown that a family eating a meal together is good for the spirit, the brain and the physical health of everyone in the family. When families make time to share dinner their kids experience lower rates of substance abuse, teen pregnancy and depression, as well as higher grade-point averages and better self-esteem. Family meals also lower the rates of obesity and eating disorders in kids.
