How important is it to your kids that you all eat together at night?
None of us like it. We never did it when they were younger and the few times we tried to do it they both whined to get up.
It's not that important to us. Every family is different. DH and I eat in the living room and the kids eat in their rooms.
It is very important to our family. We have always sat down at the table and had our dinners as a family. That will not change. I think it keeps your family close and everyone on the same page with what is going on with each other. I do not allow any food in the bedrooms or the living room because if you sit and watch tv while you eat it is said that you will do More mindless eating . Every family is different and this is just what my family does. :)
I'd say pretty important since we do that every chance we get.
We eat as a family at least 6 nights a week. If DH is travelling then the kids and I sit down at the table together. This is important for us and it has been this way since DS was born. Actually DH & I used to sit at the dining room table together for dinner even before we had the kids.
My daughter doesnt know it any other way. We always eat together :)
they like when we eat together as a family.
