Bringing Back Family Time At The Dinner Table

We are all busy these days. Our cell phones are practically glued to our hands. The texting and the quick emails throughout family time, it’s becoming the new norm. Growing up in the 80’s we never had this problem. We ate dinner as a family and considered it family time. We talked about our day, the highs and lows and enjoyed each other’s company. Those days seem long gone now.

Make Family Time Dinners Special 

I remember when my kids were old enough to sit with us at the dinner table we never even had the TV on. It’s been something I have tried to implement since. Yes some nights it is a struggle but I know they are young once. I do not want to miss out on the opportunity to sit and enjoy family time at the dinner table. I want to hear about their day at school. What they are into and just listen without distractions. 

You can find great ideas at the The Family Dinner Project website. There you will find creative and fun ways to make family meals more fun such as conversations starters and dinner time games to play.

  1. I try and make sure at least 5 days of the week are sit-down family dinners; no electronics at the table, just conversation 🙂

  2. We turn off the TV and all electronic devices, and I get the kids to help set the table and we all cook what we love for dinner and sit down and talk and find out what everyone has been doing.

    1. Even if it’s scheduled that’s ok 🙂 some weeks are like that in my house too. You work with the timing you have.

  3. We always have family dinner…no matter what is going on. We talk about everything, both good and bad…without consequence. We spell words, figure out math problems, and test each other in geography. All of this was done when I was a kid, and I’m carrying it on with my family. We love our family dinner time together!

  4. Melissa Hoffman

    We always have dinner together (when my husband isn’t working) as a family. We make sure everyone takes care of each other’s needs. And having Boston Market to serve makes it even easier!! Who doesn’t love having thanksgiving any day of the week?!

  5. Andrea peregretti

    We have all meals at the table! No TV or distractions. We each spend time sharing our day! It’s wonderful to connect and laugh!

  6. I try to make healthy and tasty dinners and have good conversation at dinnertime to bring my family to the dinner table.

  7. We have a zero tech policy at the dinner table- we talk normally to each other and see the highlights and lowlights of the day.

  8. We have the kids participate in setting the table and clean up when we do sit down together. We sit down together at least 5 days out of the week. Sometimes it’s the only time we get a chance to talk!

  9. Amanda Whitley

    i make sure we all sit down together to eat dinner at least and whenever else possible.

  10. This is so awesome. We always turn off all cell phones and TV. We talk and enjoy our food. We also love to play board games while we eat. Happy dinner = happy family.

  11. We have a no device policy at dinner. All of us leave our phones in the other room, no tablets or laptops, nothing. We sit down and talk to each other and on Friday’s we watch a movie or play a board game.

  12. We have a no television or electronic device policy and don’t answer the phone so we can focus on having a meal truly together.

  13. Nataly Carbonell

    We eat together most of the time but we don’t only eat, we like to talk and we enjoy it.

  14. Since my kids were little, we always sat down to dinner together. Now that everyone is older and have different schedules, I try to plan something everyone will enjoy when everyone is home so we can enjoy dinner together.

  15. I bring family time to the dinner table by always eating dinner with my kids and talking about their day and our plans.

  16. Joseph Stowell

    Everyone contributes to the meal in some way: setting the table, washing the vegetables, measuring out items, saying Grace, making suggestions, participating in a nice conversation during the meal, clearing the table, and washing up afterwards.

  17. We try to have dinner at the same time every night and we have rules about no TV/phones/electronics at the table so that the whole family gathers and enjoys dinner together.

  18. Kellie Murray

    Cell phones, tablets and games are not allowed at the dinner table. It is family time. I love being able to catch up with all that is going on while we enjoy a great meal.

  19. We try to eat family meals together every night and leave the cell phones/electronics away from the table!

  20. My kids are teenagers and I always have them help me cook. They look forward to it and it is teaching them an important skill. And when we all sit down to eat they get to enjoy their work.

  21. christine mayfield

    By letting the kids pick the meals from our meal rotation a few days out of the week.

  22. We have everyone turn off their phones and ipads and talk about school or the plan for the next day. Although I wish it was more often it doesn’t happen every night.
