Do you eat dinner in front of the TV?

My boys have a hard time reaching at the dining table, but no trouble at the coffee table, so we sit together on the floor using the coffee table to eat dinner on while we watch TV together. It's easy, comfy, and fun.

Where do you eat?

If I'm by myself I eat infront of my laptop. When my kids are with me, we sit at the table.

We eat in front of the TV as well. Our house is really small and our kitchen/dinning room is 1 room. But its super small. Not really enough room for a table. And the way the house is set up, its not an open floor plan so all the rooms are separated and kind of closed off. We have a small card table that we keep folded up during the day and then at meal times, we set it up right in middle of living room right in front of tv. It works for now. We are hoping to some day maybe knock down the wall between living room and kitchen and make the space more open and bigger. But thats quite a few years down the road.

When all the kids still lived at home, we did not. Dinner time was time to unplug and find out what's going on in each other's lives.

In front of the TV.  But I'd say it's important to teach kids to ask others to pass a particular dish.
