Do you sit down to eat as a family?

We have six kids but we make a very big effort to get us all at the table(s) for dinner every night to encourage the "family unit." How do you eat dinner?

  • Mostly yes, we do. Sometimes I let the kids eat in the living room, but 80% of the time when we are all here, we are seated around the table at dinner. That's always been very important to me.

  • I have five kids and we do always eat together. I think that it will be more challenging in a few years when the kids are a little older and all active in activities.

  • We sit down together. Most nights, the TV is off too. It's only 15-20 minutes out of our day. I think it sets a good routine for the kids.
