你想有一个更健康、更幸福的家庭吗?这里有一些简单方法解答你的问题。经常和你的家人一起就餐。最近一项研究发现,全家人一起就餐的时间非常重要。几项近期的研究得出一些结论;孩子们经常与家长一起吃晚餐更感到家庭的幸福,而少与家长一起就餐者,则行为常会出现问题。
American researcher Dr. Blake Bowden conducted one study. He found that young people who have family dinners at least five times a week are less likely to use drugs. They also get depressed less often and do better in school.

Clearly, regular family dinners are important for a child?s development. Why? Because dinnertime offers busy families the precious opportunity to sit down together and talk. The relaxed conversation at the dinner table strengthens family bonds. And those bonds help children develop self-esteem and a sense of belonging.
