Good article and so true. Get back to the basics and it’s amazing how much better things get.
The link between regular, sit-down together family dinners and positive outcomes for children has been documented for many years. In fact, most of the studies I’ve seen show that it is one of the best predictors for familial “success” of all the factors that were included in the study.
I hope it will be something that more people will take note of and include in their family routines. The benefits go far beyond the borders of their home.
This is a no brainer. I’ve been married for 37 years. It’s been awesome. We always had family dinners. Not quick food either. During the summer it’s grilled food, and now that Fall has arrived and the cooler weather is here Baked food. We made Baked Cod with grilled seasoned onions with just enough hot Portuguese pepper to give it a slight kick. It was awesome!
Now that our sons are older they still come over with their wives for Sunday diner.
Not is my home growing up. My narcissistic personality-disordered father was always in a terrible/angry mood and would yell at us kids all throughout dinner. It was a terribly stressful time. Yet my enabling mother used to insist we all have dinner together at the same time. Ugh, it sucked.
