Eat Dinner Together!

According to a series of studies by CASA, teens who don’t eat dinner with their families five to seven times a week are twice as likely to have used alcohol; two and a half times likelier to have used marijuana.

The more times parents spend with their children, the more they are I n a position to recognize dangerous behavior early.

A CASA study found that “the greater perceived parental disapproval of substance use, the less likely teens are to use.” ~David Sheff, Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy
