National Family Day is on the Fourth Monday of September - that's September 28, 2020 this year. It’s a great opportunity for families to eat dinner together. Watch this 1 in video to learn more about why you should engage in regular family dinners.
Parents are often surprised to hear that something as simple as eating dinner together 4 times a week can reduce the likelihood that their kids will engage risky behavior. Parental engagement is the single most potent weapon in preventing substance use among youth. Check out our Family Days Activity Guide for ideas on how to turn dinner time into something everyone looks forward.
Family Day emphasizes regular family activities to encourage parent-child communication. However, we believe everyday should be Family Day so here at Informed Families we dedicate the entire month of September to promote “Family Days.”
Head over to the Informed Families Pinterest page and check out our Family Days: Activities board for some fun ways to spend quality time with your kids.
The Family Table Time toolkit includes simple, tasty recipes that you can prepare as a family in addition to conversation starters to help your family connect. Try it for free for one month.
We hope you enjoy connecting with your family this month, and we invite you to sign the Family Day pledge and encourage your kids to sign our NEW Family Day virtual banner as well.
