The benefits of eating together as a family are pretty well documented. As small children turn into teenagers, the benefits (including better communication, higher grades and lower incident of eating disorders and drug use) become even more critical but getting teenagers to the dinner table becomes infinitely more difficult. I’m over at the Together Counts blog again today talking about four things my parents did to make my teenage self look forward to family dinner instead of dread it. I’d love to hear what has worked for you (if you have teenagers) or what worked (or didn’t work) when you were a teenager. I’m taking notes since I’m only a few years away from having a teenager!
