How many of you have your dinner with the family on the dining table or do you have it individually in your room while watching television.

We MUST have it at the dining table. With the exception of my two year old daughter. She has her food in front of the TV because she eats more that way.There are times though that she wants to have it with us as well on the dining table. This is our time to bond and talk about how our day went.

Yes we do have and we eat together in there. My parents want us to eat together and be blessed with the meal we're going to eat. We also have small tables in our room but we just eat there when we're sick. Eating together in one table makes you more united because you'll be able to share your stories and opinions. ^^,

We always eat together. It isn't always a formal dinner. Sometimes we eat while sitting around the island in the kitchen or other times we eat at the dining room table. I feel it is very important to have this time to catch up with each other and see what is going on for the week or weeks to come. Every once in a while we will grab a pizza, throw blankets on the living room floor and have dinner in front of the tv (watching a movie), but we are still eating all together.

We always tried to eat together as a family on the dining table. During dinner, we can exchange talks on what's happening on that day for everyone. At times, for those who are working can sometimes be a problem. But somehow, we try to cater for that. It's not a nice thing to do - eating in the room. Your room will be smelly and might get dirty as well.

I have two grown sons so it is hard for us to all sit down at the same time due to different schedules. But we always try to have a family dinner on Fridays and through the week it depends on schedules. But we do always eat at the table. Eating in front of the TV has never been a habit in our home.
