Dinnertime Stories: Connecting Family Practices with Relationship Beliefs and Child Adjustment.
Fiese, Barbara H.; Marjinsky, Kathleen A. T.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v64 n2 p52-68 1999
The Syracuse Dinnertime project investigated the relationship between family dinnertime rituals and narratives and child behavior. Findings indicated that couples that worked together to tell their family story also worked together and with their children in positive dinnertime exchanges. Narratives were not significantly related to child behavior or marital satisfaction. (JPB)
