  • Yes, we eat around the table as a family, no TV or other distractions. We also wait for each other to finish before we get up, which has made eating in restaurants much better!

  • That is nice what you do. We eat as a family, including the dog who sits by my DS waiting for scrapes.

  • I always sit down with the kids. When hub's work schedule allows it he does too.

  • My Husband, Our Son, and I eat Together every day..but it also depends on my Husband's shift at work. If He isn't home during dinner, my Son and I eat Together. It's very important to Us.

  • Dinner is usually a family thing. No computers , tv or cell phones at the table either.

  • Sadly, almost never. My husband is never home for dinner, except for weekends, and I'm usually too exhausted from the day and not hungry for dinner until after the kids are in bed.

  • Yes, when we can. My older daughter works odd hours and so does my husband and I volunteer a lot in the evenings, but when we are all home at dinner time we do eat together.

  • Well we try at least once per week when my daughter is with the program. We ate all together last night, I have meatloaf in now so plan to eat together tonight and then that will be it until next Tuesday based on our schedules.

  • Every night. No tv, no phone, etc. Just us talking about our day

  • My hubby has a pretty erratic work schedule but we try to sit down and eat as a family once a day. I make it a point for us to always eat at the table even if it's just me and my daughter.
