Does your family watch TV while eating their meals?

 I have friends who watch TV during every meal time which to me means they are not talking and experiencing family time. What about your family? Do you always watch TV during meal times?

No, we don't in my house.

Growing up and spending weekends with my dad, we did. I remember many family dinners filled with either the news, Love Connection or Baywatch lol

No, not on a normal basis.
There's no tv in the kitchen.
Movies, or special events we will eat in the living room.
But that's the super bowl or things like that

No no no! I hate that. We do have music on at all times in my home. But TV no way.

Yes but we are still talking and enjoying family time. We don't just sit there glued at the tv.

No we eat in the dining room every night unless it is a special thing. Once we ordered wings and we had a super hero marathon in the living room. Or if there is something special on we want to see but that is really only once in a blue moon.

We will eat dinner together in front of the TV when we have movie night.  Week nights we are not home all at the same time due to work schedules so my kids and I will sit at the bar in the kitchen and eat dinner.  When all the kids and my husband are home at the same time we will eat dinner at the kitchen table.

No. We have always eaten in the kitchen or dining room and we dont have a TV in there. 

Of course there has been times we've had a movie & pizza night or something, but every day normal meals, no....we dont eat in the living room.

I'm on my laptop every meal I have. Or watching TV. I tend to get super anxious while eating and have to be watching or reading something.
