How important is it for a family to eat dinner together? I am currently the sole source of income for my family. My husband is a stay at home husband and we have a 9 1/2 year old son.
My husband simply does not like to sit down at the dining room table and eat with my son and I. He prefers to sit in the living room in front of the tv or in front of the computer in the computer room and eat his dinner while either watching tv or surfing the net.
It makes me feel like he is sending us a message that he is too good to sit down and eat with us. He will make exceptions for holiday meals or birthday meals. I have insisted that he sit down and eat with us and told him how it makes me feel, but he tells me that most families don't eat together anymore.
I'd love to hear what you all do at meal time and what your opinions on this are.
