  • Yes, no and no.

    Dinner is one of the many hours in our days when we're all together. It doesn't need to be special in any way, or separated out from the rest of the time we spend together.

    When families are fragmented all day (and often all evening), the dinner hour being carved away from regular life makes sense... but when mom and kids are together all day, then mom, dad and kids are together all the time dad's not at work. it is rather over and above the 'family time' that makes up the bulk of life...

  • Usually no TV, but sometimes if my husband is away, I just want peace and quiet. I'll let the kids eat in front of the TV and I'll eat by the computer!

  • No TV when at the dining room table.
    Sometimes we listen to music.
    And we do dim the lights, sometimes have candles, and always turn off all the other lights in the house.
