Seems like reasonable rules to me.

In order to actually have a family meal, I would at least add,

"Children who choose not to eat the meal provided must sit pleasantly at
the table with the family until excused."

If children have to sit at the table with food in front of them while
they are hungry, they are likely to begin eating it at some point.

Dinner used to be the name of the main meal of the day. Depending upon culture, this may now be the second, third or fourth meal of the day.[1] but, originally, it referred to the first meal of the day, eaten about noon, and is still occasionally used in this fashion if it refers to a large or main meal.

I think that we should adopt some nice & polite skills to let the children finish their dinner at time.

I think we should deal with the children with a lot of tact to let them eat their dinner at time.

Pretty reasonable rules. In our family, we subscribe to everyone being present at dinner as much as possible.
We also put a cut-off time to dinner, so if you are way late...too bad.
