We never sit at the table for dinner. It upsets me. He says people dont really have time to do that anymore. I said OK Ill make a poll. He thinks "less than 13% of you actually eat at the dinner table together as a family everyday.

Keep it bumped ladies! Thanks! eating

I voted no because I usually don't eat until after they go to bed and dh usually doesn't get home until after. All the boys eat at the table together though.

We eat a few nights a week, but the goal is as much as possible. I think it is good for the family.

I didn't vote because I think 3 to 4 nights a week should be an option, and then less than that should be a different option.  We eat at the table 3 to 4 nights a week, and we do feel that it's important.  It's a quiet family bonding time with no TV, or phones, or anything like that.

It usually me and the girls urging the week when he is working late like everyday

On weekends even when he is home he doesn't eat with us and yes it bothers me.....he's still in his time schedule he fails to realize that when he comes home he needs to be on te kids schedule.

I understand. The point of the post is my.DH thinks that no one eats EVERY night together. So I made it only two options.


Quoting Marimaru:
