Day -- A Day to Eat Dinner with Your Children
Based on recent
research showing the positive effects of eating dinner as
a family on a regular basis, the National Center on Addiction
and Substance Abuse (CASA) has proposed September 24, 2001
as Family Day. The 2000 Teen Survey by CASA reveals that children
who never eat dinner with their families are 61% more likely
to smoke, drink or use illegal drugs. Children who eat family
dinners 7 nights a week are 20% less likely than the average
teen to engage in these activities. For more information and
