When Jeremy (DH) suggested we get rid of the television, I was not too excited. How could I function without my morning news show? How could I function without CNN and the weather channel? all day long? NO Hollywood? No cartoons to babysit my kids? How could anyone live like that? Well...we have been without that time-stealing, idiot-box for about 3 years. We do not even own one anymore. It's clearly one of the best decisions Jeremy ever made. I should learn to listen to him more. My children PLAY now. My kids read books now, without being told. My kids imitate what they read, not what they see on TV. BY the way, WE DO NOT DO VIDEO GAMES either. I should clarify...we do have a computer, and the kids are allowed to watch movies, once in a while. Old Tom and Jerry cartoons, Scooby Doo, Bonanza, the Roy Rogers Show, and other oldies, but goodies. We do rent movies. But we skip all of the commercials at the beginning.
I recently found a great website, that puts it all out there...the facts, please check it out!!!
