Do you insist that your family eat together at the dinner table for every meal? Or, do you think everyone is just so busy these days it's impossible to do?

Eating dinner together the majority of nights is so important to our family. We strive to do this most nights but there are some that just don't work out due to schedules.

I remember having every meal of the day at dinner table until I stayed with my parents.. We strictly followed meal time and the table rules. However with the changing lifestyle and busy schedules the least we strive for is eating dinner together.
Oh this is something I really struggled with in married life! I had one expectation but it wasn't mutual. How I wanted to have a family sit down at the table dinner, without TV, without phones, maybe some music and definitely family conversation. Well that didn't happen! Bits and pieces may have happened from time to time, but nothing with consistency. It hurt! It is something that is still possible in today's busy world. The problem is letting the busy get in line before family. No person is worth leaving behind in the dust over money. We are called to do life together so you gotta make it happen. Make adjustments to your schedule and it is perfectly attainable! It may not happen every night, but it can happen and should! Too many kids are going into schools without the social skills you learn sitting down at a table with your family to enjoy a meal together! Life is crazy... Find your balance!

During this day and age, yes, it gets harder and harder for families to eat together. Most nights we eat together, but there are a few nights when we have other activities. I think it's important still, we've had some great conversations come out over dinner. 

We try to eat together but with sports and homework and my DH work schedule we don't always get to. Mostly we manage breakfast almost everyday and the other meals are about 50% of the time together.
