Kids and church

Jesus_and_children A new study coming soon to the journal Social Science Research will be the first showing that children from church-going families are better behaved and happier. Sociologist John Bartkowski asked parents and teachers of children to rate the youngsters on behavior, happiness, and peer relationships, then compared those results to parents' reports of church attendance and at-home discussions of religion. The analysis showed that moms and dads who frequently attended church together had the most socially successful children.

One more reason to get the kiddos dressed and out the door on Sunday morning.
