Do You Ban Tech at the Table at Home?

Do You Ban Tech at the Table at Home?

You readers wholeheartedly agree that smart phones should stay powered off and off the table when you're out enjoying the company of friends. But now we're curious about your at-home rules. Are iPads banished from the breakfast table? Do iPhones have to stay at the door during dinner?

In our laid back techie household, we'd never ban gadgets. At home, it's all about whatever makes us comfortable.

Breakfast in our house means grabbing a bowl of cereal before running out the door. Dinner time is spent whipping up something tasty right out of work and relaxing however we see fit—whether that's checking Facebook, watching TV or sitting in silence.

That's what works for us. Things are different, of course, if we've planned a special night or are having friends over. But for the most part, we're happy living in a very connected house—even at mealtime.

How about you, readers? Do you ban phones at the dinner table? Is it OK to read the morning news on your iPad over breakfast in your house? Let us know in the comments!
