PARK SLOPE - A new study is making the case for parents to incorporate regular routines into their children's lives.

According to a study done by Yeshiva University, regular routines will improve children's social emotional health. Routines mentioned by the study include family dinners and reading to children.

The study looked at preschool-aged children and found routines provided a sense of security and belonging.

The study also found that children who participated in at least five kinds of family routines are twice as likely to have a high level of social emotional health.
