  • we eat dinner together as much as we can, my husband doesn't get home from work til 7:30 mon-thurs and our kids are little so they can't wait that long to eat, they need a bath and have to be in bed by 8. but fridays he's home by 6:30, saturdays by 3:30 and sundays he's off so we definitely eat together on those nights. and of course i always sit with the kids when they eat and talk to my 4 year old about her day at school. we don't really watch tv together unless we're watching a movie. but we do have game night where the whole family participates :)

  • Always.  In my family we never did those things and it is something I find to be precious.  It doesn't matter to me where we are or whats going on, whether watching television or in the kitchen.  I prefer the television to be off but only because sometimes it distracts my kiddos from eating. Exceptions are made though.

  • We do not watch TV together. I don't like TV. It is usually off unless DH is watching. Always off during meals. We always eat at the table and very rarely do we not eat at the table and talk.
