Family Dinners Could Keep Teenagers Away From Drugs

Family dinners could play an important role in keeping teenagers away from illegal drugs.

New research finds teenagers who have dinner with their family three or more times a week were less likely to try marijuana.

Those teens are also less likely to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.
Experts believe frequent family dinners cut tension and give teens more chances to confide in the parents about serious issues.
