Well people who aren't near family don't really count I am talking about the people who are near their family every day but don't sit with them for some excuse which isn't really an excuse

I eat with at least one family member pretty often, but it's unusual for us to eat at the table.

Every night. I am married with two kids. We have to make an effort. It is very worth it.

we eat at home, at the table, as family most nights. it is difficult to make that happen sometimes, but it is it worth it to the kids.

I said yes- but I'm single!
Growing up- you were on time to eat with the family (unless you'd gotten permission to eat at a friend's) or you went to bed w/o dinner!

At home with the family... yes. Table? Does the coffee table in the living room count?

Sad results. Every night my two kids, roommate and I eat dinner. No phones no tv no radio. Just the simple conversation. It's important for children to learn the art of conversation. It's lost in text and facebook and any other reason to not talk.

When I lived with my parents it was a must. Now that im living on my own and busy all the time with no family living with me, I never do.

Although we do go out to eat often, the hubby and I eat at home at the table together far more often.

I told my husband that we will always eat as a family. I grew up with a family dinner every night and I refuse to change!
