When families spend time together, children tend to fare better than other peers in terms of emotional health, behavior, and academic achievement. Shared activities include attending religious services, spending leisure time together, having dinners together, and engaging in family discussions. In addition, family time impacts the overall quality of family life, including stronger emotional bonds and more frequent expressions of love and affection.
