  • LOL... we don't own cell phones and have teenagers (16 & 17) so I don't have to have the rule.....

  • Yes, call me old fashion but, I feel that is a family time to catch up on what's going on with each other

  • Well we don't have that problem yet(my boys are 2 and 3 with 1 on the way). But when we get to that point there will definitely be a ban on cell phones while at the dinner table. That's family time. You can speak to your friends all day.

  • YES!!! Nothing worse than having dinner and them texting instead of talking!

  • Absolutely!! And no cell phones in the front seat of the car. And no cell phones on after 9 PM. Gotta have some time when the kids are actually looking at the rest of the family.
