Punta Gorda parents want to make sure that their kids spend time doing things that will help them be healthy and successful. Because of this, juggling the family schedule and prioritizing activities are a major part of parenting in the Orlando, Tampa, and Sarasota areas.
With all this competition for your child's time, you may be surprised to learn of the advantages Punta Gorda kids receive when families make time to eat dinner together.
Studies have shown that kids who have frequent family dinners benefit in the following ways:
Eating healthier meals
Less likely to try cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana
Increase in family communication
Less likely to become overweight or obese
If you want to help establish a more regular dinner time for your family, here are some tips for Naples families. Start by setting a small goal, like sitting down for dinner twice a week, and then add days on after that. Next, involve the kids by letting them help plan and prepare the meals and set the table. Lastly, always make mealtime a technology-free zone: no TV or phones allowed!
And remember, even if you're in a rush and have to pick up dinner at a local Orlando, Tampa, or Sarasota restaurant, take the time to sit down together to eat. Your family will still enjoy many of these benefits.
