Families urged to eat dinner together | family, use, day – The Orange County Register

Click for full article: Families urged to eat dinner together.

According to this article:
“Compared to teens who have frequent family dinners, those who have infrequent family dinners are almost four times more likely to use tobacco, more than twice as likely to use alcohol, two-and-a-half times likelier to use marijuana, and almost four times likelier to say they expect to try drugs in the future, according to a report from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University.”

Now add a little scripture reading and spiritual conversation to dinner and see what will happen…
