Truth or Lies

We have been talking a lot about statistics and different research that has been done on the family. It is interesting to see what different results come from different sources. It is so important that the research you trust is valid and credible. One of the articles that we briefly discussed in our class was the affects family dinner time together has on teenagers and the use of drugs. It only makes sense to me that having that family time together would correlate with good moral values such as avoiding dangerous addictions and habits. It's funny that researchers are just making this correlation now because prophets from the late 1900's have been giving this same counsel over and over to help parents rear their children and spend time with them in a way that would help them avoid such dangers. I am so grateful for the knowledge we have and the guidance that we receive because of prophets and apostles that have been called of God.
