Study Shows Parenting is Very Important (DUH)

Study finds genetic link to violence, delinquency

...And a certain mutation in DRD2 seemed to set off a young man if he did not have regular meals with his family.

"But if people with the same gene have a parent who has regular meals with them, then the risk is gone," Guo said.

"Having a family meal is probably a proxy for parental involvement," he added. "It suggests that parenting is very important."...

Hmmm, who would have thought?

Thanks, Mom, for the family dinners!

We knew there was a reason why we valued family meals so much!

Love you!
