H. CON. RES. 343
Expressing the sense of the Congress regarding the importance of
families eating together.
H. CON. RES. 343
Whereas the use and abuse of illegal drugs, nicotine, and alcohol are the
greatest threat to the health and well-being of American children;
Whereas parental influence is one of the most crucial factors in determining the
likelihood of teenage substance abuse;
Whereas family dinners have long been a pillar of American family life;
Whereas the correlation between the frequency of family dinners and the risk of
substance abuse is well documented;
Whereas surveys conducted by the National Center on Addiction and Substance
Abuse at Columbia University have found, for each of the past 4 years,
that children and teenagers who routinely eat dinner with their families
are far less likely to use illegal drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol;
Whereas, according to these surveys, teenagers from families that seldom eat
dinner together are 72 percent more likely than the average teenager to
use illegal drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol, and teenagers from families
that eat dinner together are 31 percent less likely than the average
teenager to use illegal drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol;
Whereas one method for families to eat dinner together more often would be for
them to select a recurring occasion for doing so, such as the third
Monday of each month; and
Whereas a National Eat-Dinner-With-Your-Children Day on Monday, June 19, 2000,
would encourage families to eat together: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That it is the sense of the Congress that--
(1) eating dinner together is a critical step for a family
in raising healthy, drug-free children; and
(2) a National Eat-Dinner-With-Your-Children Day should be
established in order to encourage families to eat together as
often as possible.
Passed the House of Representatives July 25, 2000.
