Is There 'No Tech' Time in Your House?

When it was time for home-cooked dinners in the family dining room, the TV went off and the phone—no matter how much it rang—went unanswered. But in these days, there's a thousand more distractions...

I've been out of the house for a while now and I don't have children of my own so I don't really have a hand on the pulse of what family meal time looks like in the digital age.

This NY Times article about families who battle their computers and iPhones for family time got us thinking about what the family dynamic of our readers looks like these days. Just based on the time we asked about TV in your kids' rooms, we know that we've got to have readers on every side of this debate.

So is there still a 'no TV' rule at your table at dinnertime? Will you let the kids bring their cell phones to the breakfast table? Are they allowed to text away while they munch on their cereal? Let us know in the comments!
