K.I.S.S. tips for family meals

December 4, 2012
From West Virginia University Extension Service , movparent

Try these tips to help your family connect better at mealtime. Find out what works for your family. Keep It Stress-free and Simple.

Keep your eyes, ears and heart connected to your family members.

In tune with your family.

Stress-free and relaxed atmosphere.

Simple.

Remember; focus on family conversation at mealtime. When the television is off, you answer the home phone later, and other electronics are off (cell phones, iPods, and video games), you can involve the whole family in conversation. This could be the most important 20 minutes of your child's day. Research shows children who often share meals with their families may have fewer risky behaviors in their teen years such as smoking, early sexual activity, drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana.
