Eat All Your Meals Together with Your Children

If your a parent and want your children from achieving high grades at school and prevent them from trying to smoke or drink alcoholic beverages then please try this method:

1. Kids who eat with their parents are less likely to try alcohol, cigarettes and drugs- kids who don’t sit down to dinner with their family at least three times a week triple their risk of experimenting with alcohol, nicotine or drugs.

2. Family meals make kids healthier- teens who ate the most meals with their families while growing up turned into college students who ate the most fruits and vegetables. The same study showed that family meals drastically reduced the risk of kids developing an eating disorder.

3. Your kids will be smarter- younger children who ate with their parents had better vocabularies. Researchers found that high-schools who had dinner with their families got 40 percent more A's and B's than those who didn’t.
