I then took the TV in the kid’s playroom and brought it into the kitchen to use while I was busy preparing meals. My thought is that the kids are on the bottom of the food chain in this house with regards to television.
In the last week they have had to watch their programs on a very limited basis…so they couldn’t sit and mindlessly watch the TV until they had lost all sense of time.
So what happened??? They are now playing outside with their friends! The friends don’t want to come inside because there is no TV. My kids are getting fresh air, using their imaginations and getting exercise! I wish our main TV would have broken 4 years ago! My husband says TV is evil…well while in my opinion it may not be necessarily “evil”, some good definitely did come out of our broken TV set!!!
