We don't have kids but we still try and do dinner at the home table or we take the time to go out. No tv, no internet, just catching up on each other's day. You are right though, most dinners for my nieces are at the drive thru in the car as they are heading to another game, practice or whatever. We gave my Mom a blank cook book for Christmas this year to fill out with her recipes because we know if we lose her we are losing many centuries of home cooking (meaning her Mom in laws too)!

Well .... I have three teenagers and it seems that the dinner table is the only time we get to talk about whats going on in there lives.

Busy schedule's , facebook ,texting and TV make it hard to catch up to them.

Plus they invite there friends over for dinner and we get to know who there hanging with .

A thing of the past.

Parents of today don't have or take the time to make that an importance. It helps explains why their kids cant talk, communicate and have a lack of mannors and respect for the elder.

My 2 boys are 8 & 10 so there's usually something going on 3 to 4 nights a week with them but we find time when possible for the 4 of us to eat at the table like we're 'supposed' to. An yes...we say a blessing first.

we do every night we eat @ home. our boys are 12 & 13. they will eat dinner with us until they move out, no option. If they have an event to do, they can do it, but "dinner time is dinner time", not "whenever you want to eat, time". Just the way we do it.

I try to make this happen ( all of us at the table together ) as often as possible , my 15 year old son can be a pain in the ass sometimes though. Todays society is fucked up.

We do in my house. I grew up eating where ever and decided that since I'm grown and have stared my own family, that dinner is family time together at the table.
