Smartphone addiction is a real and serious problem. We've been hearing more and more callers on the Kim Komando Show asking questions about what to do when their children become addicted to video games or their smartphones.
With that in mind, ask yourself, how often have your kids brought their smartphones to the dinner table? How many family dinners have gone wasted because your kids are glued to their smartphone screens? Not any more. Not with the help of the Family Dinner Project.
Research shows that regular family meals provide many different mental, emotional and physical benefits such as higher self-esteem, lower risk of depression, better performance at school or work, and lower risk of obesity and eating disorders. It can also help busy families of all types bond and wind down from a long day.
With the help of the Family Dinner Project, bring great company together at the dinner table with a great meal and great conversation for a happier life. The official site provides you with lots of great ideas and conversation starters to get the ball rolling. You'll also find recipes anyone can appreciate.
To get started, you will want to check out the 4-week program. The site will suggest you sign up, which will include daily emails and newsletters with daily suggestions to keep you on your toes. But, you can also continue without signing up.
This 4-week program will give you lots of great recipes, tips and tricks to try, and lots of great ways to get everyone, not just the kids, off of their phones, such as declaring the dinner table a tech-free zone.
