Do you eat dinner at the table as a family?

Does your family sit together at the table for dinner or is everyone off in their own world in their own rooms? Or in front of the tv? Do you think it's important to eat as a family? Why or why not?

I'm writing a speech for my communications class and my topic is family dinners. I'm trying to get a general idea of the level of importance that families in this decade place on family meal times versus how it was 20 years ago.

We eat together at the table a few times a week. My girls (2 & 4) normally would rather eat at the table than in front of the TV. But we do both. Tonight they ate in dd1s room because they wanted to watch a movie on Disney jr. (And we had pizza so it's not like it was messy).

We always eat together. Not always at the table.

We always eat together at the table. It's a good time to talk & enjoy each others' company.

I grew up In A house where if we actually managed to eat in the same room it was with the TV on in the living room.

Now as a mom we always eat together at the table, no distractions just us.
My kids know the drill they won't even start eating until everyone is sitting down at the table.
They are 5 and 3.

We eat together at the table. I think it's very important.
