Columbia University has a research team that has directly linked increasing substance abuse amongst our youth to a lack of family time at the dinner hour. The good old fashion event where the family gathered around the table discussing the issues of the day in addition to consuming a good home cooked meal.
If this is a concern of yours, which isn't it for any mom out there trying to do the that she can for her family? I have a great new place you can go to for information, hints, tips and encouragement!
Let me introduce my great friend, Alice Osborne, mother to 7, step-mom to 5, grandmother and step-grandmother to 14. As a published author and professional presenter, I have no doubt that she will have a great impact upon this most important topic.
I would invite you all to stop by her new fun and very important blog "Making Family Dinner Hour Possible". Please check it out, and if you like refer your family and friends to it. And if you like, please feel free to CONTRIBUTE! She has designed it as a community blog, and this is a great place to share all your experience and thoughts on the matter.
And I know that you ALL have great experience and wonderful thoughts to share, that would be beneficial to so many people!
