You may suspect that family routines, such as mealtimes together and reading to your child consistently, are good for your child’s well being, but now science has proven it.
A recent study published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics confirms that young children who take part in family routines are more likely to be socially and emotionally advanced. This development at home has been proven to enable the children to thrive in the classroom as well.
However you decide to do it, the goal is to spend quality time together fostering communication and loving relationships.
