i need a TV at the time of eating

January 26, 2013 2:57pm CST
It may be quite unusual but whenever i am on my dinning table, i need the TV remote in my hand. Its my habit. Whenever I eat, let it be snacks or dinner, That time TV is under my custody. Others of my family are acquainted with this and they immediately hand over the remote to me for that period. I usually see news channels. Sometimes, my son puts his fav. channel like cartoon network and passes the remote to me. After eating half, i realize that i am actually not looking Tv, in stead thinking something else, then i switch over to news channel. Moreover apart from my eating time, i usually dont see TV, so rest times are for my family to see daily soaps etc. Do you too have some routine type habit!!

yes you are... the dinner table is the place to eat not watch tv at. I make my son turn tv off when he comes to dinner. Just me.

When I was growing up, we had a tv in the living room, kitchen and bedrooms. I was never a fan of tv, even as a child. For some reason, it bores me, I cannot figure out why, but it just does. Cable, like HBO and SHOWTIME, however, changed that, I began to really love television when that arrived. As far as routine habits? probably none that I can think of. Which sounds strange because I can't think of one routine habit, lol...Oh well, my best to you and yours.

I do not allow my kids to be watching the tv while eating coz there are negative effects on the kids' health. And so I also do not do the same. http://www.naturalnews.com/025252_eating_research_television.html

there are things that we do and get used doing them without really thinking what is going on. watching TV is not a major task and action that needs focus. it can be done on the side while doing something else, like eating. i also like watching TV while eating. usually news programs are scheduled during dinner. that's the time i watch TV.
