Recipe For Family Bonding: Family Movie Night

A Stepdadding.com original series. Did you know that family traditions and rituals create & strengthen family bonds? It’s true; researchers at Syracuse University found that things like traditions, pet names and inside jokes make happier and healthier families. Even simple rituals made a difference. These were things like:

  • Regular bed times
  • Eating together
  • Regular chores
  • Bedtime stories
  • Birthday celebrations

The Syracuse study found that families who follow traditions and rituals such as these were happier, had healthier kids and had lower levels of stress in the home.  It was with this study in mind that we created our original series Recipes for Family Bonding. A Stepdadding.com original series. Host, Chastity Jackson gives Stepdads some great ideas to help with family bonding. As a stepdaughter, she knows what worked for her dad.
