Hey HCers, when you guys were children or teenagers did you sit down with your family for meals?  Or if you have kids do you do that now?

The reason I ask is because of the post in the movie thread about Back to the Future II. One thing they really nailed was the dinner scene where everybody is absorbed in their own entertainment gadget.  When I was a kiddie that wasn't the case and my family made a point of having everybody at the dinner table at the same time for some face to face conversation.  

Am curious what's going on nowadays.

We always dined together, not forced to or anything that's just how it was, it wouldn't have felt right otherwise (and alternatives never even occured). That said back then we didnt even have internet in the house so ye.

Yup, and I chastise my mother for using her phone at the dinner table sometimes.

The only times we ate at separate times was when my father used to return late from work, but even then, we would sit around anyway.

Pretty much yes, we did that, and still do.

But not all meals, mostly lunch only. On weekends.
I don't eat breakfast at all, because I have a tendency to puke it out afterwards for some undisclosed medical reason, to which a cure is a trip to India appearantly(as is the cure for every neurological disorder for young adults.)
And We have light dinners at an inconsistent time.

Yeah we always sat down for dinners together as a family, and it was pretty much around 17.00 most every day

Young Elvin used to be distracted prior to family lunch, not during. I'm coming! A few minutes later. Yes yes, on my way! A little later. Huh? Oh right, coming.

Well when I was young my family and I always sat up the table together to eat when we all got home, usually 17:00.
Now I have my own kids we do the same thing - no phones or tablets allowed at least until the meal is finished.

We don't have that kind of luxury in Serbia.  All I can do is contemplate, whine or lose my nerves over the fact that I have to write an essay on the topic of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, and I don't have any motivation to start.

I'm incredibly tired...

I've technically done half of my math exams, if the next goes as planned I can skip the actual exam and essentially bid maths farewell.

This wasn't even difficult, but still, I'm tired.

Couch, here I come.
