The benefits Of Family Eating Together

The Family that eats together stays happy together

 A recent study about family relationship, says that kids  who eat with their families do better in school and are likely not to smoke, use drugs or drink alcohol nor engage in fights or any troubles than those who are left alone to eat. The eating together makes family had that chance to talk and enjoy each other. It doesn’t have to be a gourmet food as food is not a matter of importance here. Eating together also does not mean all the family sitting in one table at the same time everyday. It can be eating together in front of television and in any time as long as kids share meal with the family. According to Dr.David Ludwig, Pediatrics Professor at Harvard University and author of  the book “Ending the Food Fight”, having  dinner together is probably the most important way to promote good health and nutrition. This is because when family eats together, kids eat healthier and better. Dr. Ludwig also adds that no matter what the family eats, the process is slowed down and extends the family time.  One or two mealtime shared together is enough to have the benefits. It doesn’t have to exactly on same time but having a routine will make family sticks to the habit. Share a meal to your kids and you’ll be surprise how they will share their life with you.

A family that eats together stays happy together. Who doesn’t want this to be true?

What if your kid is the bully?

Make your kid feels he's wanted and not rejected

One of the problems that confront parents is when our kids are bullied in school. We immediately react and do every possible thing to stop these bullying acts.  With many available helps, parents have ideas of how to avoid and resolve this problem. But what if your kid is the bully himself? Here are some tips on how you can stop your kid from bullying other kids.
tT    Talk to your kid- there must be some problems with your kids. Have a heart-to heart talk with him and assess what’s wrong in his behavior.  Ask why he is doing it and what makes him do it. There may be some underlying factors why he is such a bully.
  Fi    Find solution with him- If your kid has open up with you, try to solve the problem together. Lay down suggestions and make him feel that you are on his side and not you’re not persecuting him but clearly point out that his act is inappropriate and must be stopped.
D          Divert his energies into something productive and worthwhile- Most bully kids are very active kids. Try to divert his energies and attention to some hobbies that will make him more productive and creative.  One known bully in school after being introduced to sports became the most discipline and friendliest kid in the campus. Make your bully kid feel that he is needed and loved and not prosecuted and discriminated.
       Avoid creating a tag of him- Even a bully won’t want to be tag as one. Avoid this tagging or labeling notion. Make him see he is capable of changing for the better and there’s always a room for him in the community and school. Make him feel he's wanted, needed ,loved and not rejected.
        Ask help- If your kid needs help, don’t hesitate to consult professional help. You can ask teachers and school authorities for assessing and counseling.  But make sure that your kid is not put in any compromising or humiliating conditions as this will make the problem worse.  Get his permission and explain to him why there’s a need for him to subject himself to counseling.  Give him the feel that his opinion is needed  and is given importance in solving the issue.

There’s always wrong perception about bully kids but if given the right attention and counseling, these bully kids could turn to be the most productive and successful kids in the future. What they need is understanding and enough tender loving care from people close and around him.
