The Chesterfield County Youth Development Coalition has joined with local area restaurants and the Chesterfield County Libraries to celebrate National Family Day.
The YDC has designed place mats to use for your family dinner with fun things for the kids to do and conversation topics for you and your teen. Whether you’re cooking a gourmet meal, ordering food from your favorite take-out place or eating on the go, rest assured that what your kids really want during dinnertime is you.
Family meals are the perfect time to talk to your kids and to listen to what’s on their mind. The more often kids eat dinner with their families, the less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs.
Become a Star Family by visiting the Family Day website at http://casafamilyday.org/familyday/about-family-day/, and commit to: Spend time with my kids by having dinner together; Talk to them about their friends, interests and the dangers of drugs and alcohol; Answer their questions and listen to what they say; Recognize that I have the power to help keep my kids substance free.
Family Day place mats are available at the following locations:
All Chesterfield County Libraries
Wendy’s in Pageland, Chesterfield, and Cheraw
Fatz Café in Cheraw
Bojangles in Pageland
Smokehouse Grill in Jefferson
