There is no different way of raising your family as far as you as parent and the children feel comfortable. I strongly feel a family time chatting amoung all of you discussing all matters related to you even politics, music, friends, family politics etc even if other families are not doing it. You can also develop your own eating habits specially the timings and a chain within the family that all will sit together and have it. The only thing u need to take care is that your children do not feel strangers in the locality they live in.

Too much time is wasted in watching what other people do. You're doing just fine. Follow your instinct and you won't go wrong.
